SNV advances economic development and socio-economic inclusion through the Inclusive Business model. This innovative approach seeks to increase the income, production and well-being of low-income groups, while at the same time, generating benefits for participating companies.
Through developing Inclusive Business commercial models that involve low-income groups in the value chain of a medium or large company as producers, distributors or consumers, SNV helps companies improve their supply chains, strengthen their human resources and access new markets. Low-income participants benefit by gaining reliable buyers and fair prices for their products, from new jobs and from access to affordable, quality goods and services.
SNV has developed more than 140 Inclusive Business projects in Latin America, Asia and Africa working with companies in sectors ranging from agribusiness to renewable energy to food products, tourism, and commerce to construction, among others.
