Abstract

Creating sustainable businesses can result in improved quality of life for billions living on $2 or less a day. Often referred to as the base of the pyramid (BoP), the very poor have little hope of escaping poverty, andthey lack safe water, food, and education. Foreign aid helps them survive, but a long-term solution is needed. Value chain facilitation can be a significant poverty alleviation strategy. Value chains allow the poor to participate as producers, suppliers, facilitators, and customers for inclusive business activities in BoP settings. Improved training and enhanced productive inputs create increased availability of goods and services at affordable prices.
