  • Design of a Livelihood Intervention Strategy, Sri Lanka

    MicroSave assisted its partner Arthavida Foundation in Sri Lanka to study the existing supply chains of the agri-commodities and explore the financial and non-financial interventions that it can undertake. MicroSave, studied the supply chain for major agri commodities (like banana and vegetables) in 3 divisions of the Moneragala and Ratnapura districts, which fall in one of the most backward regions of Sri Lanka. We studied the existing supply chain bottlenecks and scope of intervention for Arthavida. The study will help Aathavida to build on its existing small tank modernisation programme.
