Micro Investing is not limited to a specific type of crop, technology, or technique. So far, farmers have tested various types of vegetables, poultry and fruit orchards. The main question is how to effectively promote a change of practice. Three main components are combined to transform the farmer’s business model:
Know-how and inputs that introduce modern agriculture are packaged in Micro Investment Kits and sold to the small- holder farmers. The farmer is approached as a decision maker and investor, not a beneficiary of aid.
A series of these micro investments become an Upgrade Path that allows the farmers to gradually increase the return on their work capacity and acreage. Each incremental invest- ment is kept affordable and includes support by a rollout team to secure performance, avoid setbacks, and build required capabilities.
Performance Management ensures that on-boarding new participants is effective, as well as in promoting best practice for the implementation of the climate-smart Micro Investment Kits. It will be supported by a digital platform that connects the farmer to knowledge and business partners.
