Entrepreneurs for Rural Access
Entrepreneurs for Rural Access – business models
Most combine advisory services with other businesses, e.g.
biogas installation, food processing, selling cassava seed;
selling hydroponic fodder or azolla as animal feed,
mushroom production, running an organic farm or organic
food delivery, managing a youth club, teaching, beekeeping,
veterinary services, promoting millet-based food …
• ERAs earn between 40 and 100$ per month from organising video screenings,
from renting the smart projector to organizations, from running workshops and
from selling videos.
• Through the video screening service, some ERAs have enhanced the sales of their
core businesses by 40% through product awareness (e.g. honey, mushrooms,
hydroponic fodder).
Entrepreneurs for Rural Access - revenues
 Over the past decade, Access Agriculture has served over 5,000 organisations,
including extension services, farmer organisations, TV and radio stations.

contributing to food sovereignty and agroecological transitioning.

 By investing in quality training videos for farmers,
you can reach and influence many stakeholders in
the food system
 Appropriate ICT tools combined with local social
capital can help to engage more rural women and
youth in agroecological transitioning
 Youth lack land, finance and knowledge, but are
interested in providing services, in producing organic
inputs and niche commodities, in food processing
and in local marketing
