Are you or the businesses you support in agribusiness facing challenges to sourcing from the numerous small-scale farmers in your field? You are not alone! The supply chain management challenge is common for many agribusinesses in Africa, and even in the world.
USAID’s Kenya Investment Mechanism has partnered with eProd to host a one-hour webinar that you might be interested in! E-Prod has developed an affordable ICT platform, or ERP, to manage agricultural supply chains. You will get a chance to understand the innovative solutions offered by eProd, ranging from farmer registration to production contracts, field inspections, collections, training, communication, payments, traceability, and weather information, among others. Currently, 75 clients use eProd to source from about 250,000 small-scale farmers in 10 African countries.
The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, September 10th, 2020 from 2.00 pm – 3.00 pm. (Note: this event was rescheduled and initially planned on 3rd September 2020)
The agenda is as follows:
- Introduction of eProd and Kenya Investments Mechanism
- Overview of the Supply Chain Management System for Agribusiness
- Deep dive on eProd and how the system can create value for your business
We encourage you to attend and invite as many of the firms you are supporting to access capital that engage with smallholder farmers. Please confirm your attendance by replying to this as soon as possible, so as to share with you the login credentials to the webinar.
