About Farmfit and this assignment:
The 500 million smallholder farmers globally are deprived from essential services to properly develop their farming systems and increase household incomes. In Africa, regional food security for the rapidly growing population crucially depends on the successful integration of smallholder production in regional value chains. This requires companies, civil society and governments to innovate together, develop business models and forge new supply chain collaborations. IDH Farmfit Business Support drives this transformation by supporting companies and financial institutions to analyze, innovate, and scale up their smallholder business models.
Using IDH’s Service Delivery Model (SDM) methodology, Farmfit analyzes the business models of companies providing services to smallholder farmers. Using the insights of the analyses, we design and co-invest in innovation projects to further improve or scale the farmer engagement model of the companies. To further strengthen this methodology, IDH is looking to integrate primary farm data collection among the smallholders/households the company is serving.
