Having good high-quality agricultural inputs is not easy if one does not live in a town or city. In order to address this need in rural areas, we have teamed up with village entrepreneurs.
We have developed shops which sell agricultural inputs locally in our intervention villages, with two objectives:
- 1. to ensure a local selection of quality inputs and
- to ensure quality advice.
For this last objective, we train entrepreneurs in the rational usage of pesticides and fertilizer and the risks that the usage of these kinds of products can entail.
