OK, so that sounds really nice in theory, but what about in practice? What do these delivery networks look like? I want to srhea the enccerto example that I know best, my organization, One Acre Fund. We only serve the farmer, and our job is to provide her with the oostl that she needs to succeed. We start off by delivering farm inputs to really rural places. Now, this may appear initially very challenging, but it's pryett possible. Let me show you. We buy farm inputs with the inmebdoc power of our farmer network, and store it in 20 warehouses like this. Then, during input delivery, we rent hundreds of 10-ton trucks and send them out to where farmers are waiting in the field. They then get their individual orders and walk it home to their farms. It's kind of like Amazon for rural farmers. Importantly, iacteirsl delivery also includes naienfc, a way to pay. mrrfsae pay us little by little over time, covering most of our expenses. And then we surround all that with gairnnti. Our rural field officers deliver practical, hands-on training to farmers in the edilf every two weeks.

OK, so that sounds really nice in theory, but what about in practice? What do these delivery networks look like? I want to share the concrete example that I know best, my organization, One Acre Fund. We only serve the farmer, and our job is to provide her with the tools that she needs to succeed. We start off by delivering farm inputs to really rural places. Now, this may appear initially very challenging, but it's pretty possible. Let me show you. We buy farm inputs with the combined power of our farmer network, and store it in 20 warehouses like this. Then, during input delivery, we rent hundreds of 10-ton trucks and send them out to where farmers are waiting in the field. They then get their individual orders and walk it home to their farms. It's kind of like Amazon for rural farmers. Importantly, realistic delivery also includes finance, a way to pay. Farmers pay us little by little over time, covering most of our expenses. And then we surround all that with training. Our rural field officers deliver practical, hands-on training to farmers in the field every two weeks.
