Reaching the Unreachable: How Smallholder Farmers Can Achieve ...
“Opportunity International’s microloans and savings accounts are enabling a legion of [smallholder] farmers across Africa to obtain the better seeds and fertilizer vital to producing harvests big enough to feed their families and perhaps yield a surplus for added income,” says Roger Thurow, author of Enough: Why the World’s Poor Starve in an Age of Plenty and Senior Fellow on Global Agriculture and Food Policy at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. Thurow is highlighting both the opportunity and the challenge: 65% of sub-Saharan Africa works in the agricultural sector, but the industry receives only four percent of official ... market research, surveys and trends

A value chain identifies, and shows the links, or chain, of the distinct activities and processes that you perform to create, manufacture, market, sell, and distribute your product or ...
How do you evolve from a VENDOR to a TRUSTED ADVISOR to your ...
A trusted advisor is not trying to sell them anything, a trusted advisor is just that, someone who advises and delivers information that can be trusted.
