Microphone IFC pushes for smallholder professionalism

Alan Johnson, senior operations officer at IFC, talks with Innovation Forum’s Toby Webb about capacity building challenges for smallholder farmers

These challenges are a major constraint to growth of the agriculture sector, and impact security of supply and traceability for big brands. Johnson explains why IFC believes that boosting the “professionalism” of smallholders, such as through improving access to finance and growing business management capability, is crucial for real impact at scale.
