Buy from Women Enterprise Platform brochure

A brief overview of UN Women's Buy from Women Enterprise Platform, a data-driven, enterprise platform that combines an open source end-to-end cloud-based, and mobile enabled supply chain system to connect women farmers to information, finance and markets. This product innovation enables women farmers to have a 360 degree view of the entire business lifecycle.

The information captured through the Platform has the potential to unlock traditional and innovative sources of finance for farmers and cooperatives that can be used to invest in processing and post-harvesting labour and time-saving equipment. Such equipment will enable farmers to avoid distress selling, receive higher prices, and reduce post-harvest losses. The Platform also offers cooperatives a powerful tool to improve their management. The brochure includes information on the major system features, product design, added value and vision for UN Women's work in this area.
