Growing Prosperity Report by Acumen and Bain

Growing Prosperity —a new report to help entrepreneurial companies, and others,unlock the potential of smallholder farmers through large-scale adoption of agricultural innovations and inputs.  The report’s insights and findings—which are the result of interviews with more than 300 smallholder farmers, sector experts and pioneer firm  management—demonstrate the transformative power of providing smallholder farmers with the right access to the right innovations at the right time. In parallel, the report addresses why very few pioneer firms have been able to achieve the scale needed to provide smallholder farmers with access to agricultural products and services that have the potential to increase their yields and pull them out of poverty.
