Business management skills matter too

Alan Johnson, senior operations officer at IFC, talks with Innovation Forum’s Toby Webb about capacity building challenges for smallholder farmers

Johnson explains why IFC believes that boosting the “professionalism” of smallholders, such as through improving access to finance and growing business management capability, is crucial for real impact at scale.
