Inclusive Business Approach builds bridges between business and the poor for mutual benefit. For business they include driving innovations, building markets and strengthening supply chains. And for the poor they include access to essential goods and services, higher productivity, sustainable earnings and greater empowerment.
SAI’s Inclusive Business Approach (SAI’s IBA) integrates smallholder farmers into corporate value chain, where they grow pulpwood next to traditional crops in paired row. It uplifts smallholder farmers’ family to above poverty line while ensuring sustained raw materials supply to paper mills; and improved natural ecosystem to combat global warming.
SAI’s IBA brings to farmer’s doorstep: access to finance, quality inputs, training & capacity building, technical monitoring and market access. At maturity, we organize supply chain with assured buyback at market rate as we have direct linkage with markets.
