Agri-input retailers in emerging markets face major obstacles to running a professional and profitable business. A webinar by SCOPEinsight showcases a solution to overcome the barriers to last-mile distribution and to ensure smallholder farmers have access to the right tools.
Suppliers in emerging countries who provide input to farmers often lack expertise and have limited product knowledge as well as limited advisory and training skills – not to mention limited infrastructure and lack of access to funding. Bayer, the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the non-profit organization Cultivating New Frontiers in Agriculture (CNFA), and SCOPEinsight have developed a solution to overcome the barriers to last-mile distribution.
In a webinar by SCOPEinsight, titled Reaching the last mile in emerging markets by strengthening input retailers, Stephan Brunner, Global Key Relation Manager at Bayer, and Theodore Gounongbe, Food Chain Manager WCA, discussed how to strengthen agricultural input retailers in emerging markets – and shared their insights about this exciting, co-developed new tool.
