Promoting Inclusive Markets and Financial Systems
This guide is intended to provide the field-level practitioner with tools and applications to reach very poor households. Topics addressed include vertical and horizontal linkages between poor producers and buyers and suppliers. The Guide starts by focusing on the “harder,” more tangible contractual arrangements with private sector actors, and moves toaddress the “softer,” less tangible relationship and behaviour type issues that form the foundation for their success or failure. The goal of the Guide is to have greater market engagement for very poor households through enterprise development activities.
