Rural Mobility and Agro-Products Collection Centers

Seshie Ahedor of Vivus Ltd. in Ghana will establish an infrastructure to provide cargo motorbikes to rural women farmers for labor-enduring activities such as the collection of crops, and to enable access to remote markets for selling produce. They will set-up mobility collection centers for provision and maintenance, and test on-demand pay-as-you-go versus group-ownership financing models in several villages. Once the most effective financing model has been identified, they aim to build a network of collection centers to provide affordable mobility options for smallholder farms nationwide.
