  4. 4. Context.. Indian Market Research Bureau (IMRB) impact assessment study (2001) on credit customers revealed that – 52% showed increase in the income – 25 % reported no change in the income levels – 23% reported decline in their income levels Review of BASIX Work The reasons • Low Productivity • Un-managed Risk • Low Price Realization / Access to Market.

Input Supply Agri Input companies, wholesalers', dealers, Enhance competencies, Reduce transaction costs and Reduce risk for farmers by integrating all services FARMERS The task is too complex for any single actor. Hence there is a need for multilateral partnerships or “Collaborative Polygon”. However, it is useful for one actor to be the anchor, who understands both development & finance markets for the Collaborative Polygon to work. BASIX tries to play that role.
