2SCALE attaches paramount importance to networking between key players in a value chain, which is seen as essential to performance and competitiveness. For the programme, the power of networking lies in its potential to positively influence SMEs/SMIs towards new heights, fostering a collaborative dynamic and synergy essential to success.
With this vision in mind, the corn partnership has set itself the task of facilitating the establishment of a supportive network of women craft processors where they can regularly share their experiences, address their challenges and build solutions, turning competition into opportunity. With the commitment and active participation of women processors in Bobo-Dioulasso and Banfora, two networks of micro-companies for small-scale maize processing have been set up in the maize partnership.
These networks provide a dynamic platform for collaboration and the resolution of challenges in the small-scale maize processing sub-sector.
