Challenges of working with smallholders

This is the second video in a series taped at Fintrac in Washington DC during a discussion about our partnership at the Partnering for Innovation program I participated in. In this video there was an opportunity for the team to learn more about Netafim and our work with smallholders as well as financing.

The biggest challenge is financing. Organizing the farmers into a critical mass is another one, as well as training, which is not for just a week or two, but it’s for a lifetime. It’s clear that systems can be sometimes expensive for the smallholder, but the ROI is very fast. Partnerships are essential in overcoming these challenges.
