Smallholder AgriTech Business Models
Government, NGO, and business leaders typically see great promise for digital tools to empower smallholder value chains and make them more efficient and profitable for farmers.

This report provides an overview of those five business models, namely Digital Advisory, Peer-to-Peer Lending, Traceability, Digital Marketplaces and Mechanization Platforms, and why they show the greatest promise.
