Purchase for Progress: Improved negotiation skills key to success

Access to agricultural inputs such as seeds and fertilizers have helped Purchase for Progress (P4P)-supported farmers in Nicaragua to successfully increase their crop productivity, and therefore meet market demand. The strengthened link between smallholder farmers and agricultural input providers can be traced to the smallholders’ improved negotiation skills and access to credit, allowing their organisations to negotiate and buy inputs in bulk.
