Study of Value Chains, the Philippines
MicroSave assisted its partner TSKI to identify promising agri value chains for future intervention in the remote island of Samar, the Philippines. Owing to several structural and market related bottlenecks, TSKI faced major reverses in financing paddy cultivation in the region. The task before MicroSave was to suggest alternative commodities where TSKI could identify both financial and non-financial interventions. MicroSave prepared detailed value chain maps, SWOT analysis, and intervention strategy along with time line for implementation in Copra and Paddy value chains.
