Projecting the producer cashflow

Service delivery models (SDMs) are supply chain structures that provide farmers with services such as training, access to inputs, finance and information. The SDM analysis is a tool for IDH to unpack the relationship between cost of services, impact on the farmer and impact on the service provider’s business. An analysis conducted for a potential forestry outgrower scheme shows, for example, that an outgrower who is intercropping groundnuts before canopy closure and harvesting short-rotational trees at six years, can gain a net income of about US $2,200 in the 6-year period. This could be financially attractive to outgrowers as supplementary income since most of them have farms growing other crops, with the average farm income in the benchmarked region being around US $1,300 per year.

However, patient credit is needed to bridge the initial years during negative cashflow, and the opportunity costs for communities still need to be properly assessed.
