Exciting Partnership Set to Improve the Nigerian Agri-Landscape
We are pleased to announce the induction of Pearl Mutual Consulting, Ltd. into our Local Expert Network program! Pearl Mutual is one of the leading business advisory firms in Nigeria. With an over 10-year track record of working with Nigeria’s leading banks, Pearl mutual is well placed to link agribusinesses to finance using SCOPEinsight’s tools. Having Pearl Mutual as one of our LEN experts in Nigeria ensures that the Nigerian agribusiness industry will get a much-needed boost. We hope with this partnership, the agribusiness landscape will move towards a more data-driven, evidence-based way of working.
The Local Expert Network widens the application of time tested tools
SCOPEinsight built tools and systems using a methodology that allows market players to measure farmer professionalism in a standardized, data-driven way. Over the past 11 years, this has helped our clients link agribusinesses to markets and finance and improve the agribusinesses’ level of professionalism in 45 countries. While we are excited about the breadth of our tools’ application, our ultimate goal is to deepen the country’s ecosystem of providers. One way to strengthen this ecosystem is by strengthening the BDS provider’s capacity to offer data-driven services. Creating a thriving local economy is why we launched the Local Expert Network program.
Combining SCOPE services with valuable local knowledge
The LEN is a partnership program that – on the one hand, creates value for market players and capacity builders in target countries and – on the other hand, creates value for local businesses. Through the LEN, we aim to attract organizations that share our vision of professionalizing agribusinesses and can serve as reliable SCOPE tool implementors. Through partnering with like-minded businesses (Local Experts), we ensure that international capacity builders can efficiently implement their projects while strengthening the local economy.
In 2020 we welcomed the first group of Local Experts: Four outstanding organizations with extensive knowledge of the local market, a proven track record of delivering complementary services to those offered by SCOPEinsight, and their drive to expand their business.
Pearl Mutual offers and delivers local implementation power in Nigeria
One of the first Local Experts onboarded is Pearl Mutual Consulting Ltd, an organization with more than ten years of experience delivering various Capital Raising, Financial Advisory, and Executive Training services. PearMutual believes that Nigeria’s future lies in developing its agricultural industries, reason why they strive to play an instrumental role in the growth and development of agribusinesses throughout the country.
As part of the LEN, SCOPEinsight will support PearlMutual’s mission to enable access to finance for agribusinesses throughout the country by providing access to our latest tools and systems and making them participants of our upcoming portal project.
We stand by PearlMutual’s commitment to building a bridge between innovative farmers and the funds they need to transform agriculture, and we are proud to have them as one of the members of our Local Expert Network.
