This step-by-step manual is designed to help development agency staff lead smallholder farmers to use group marketing strategies that can increase the value of the goods they sell. It provides guidance to groups on how to choose strategies that will provide the most benefit to them, including democratic decision-making systems, task allocation, accurate record-keeping, relating to traders and credit providers, using market information, and negotiating with buyers and input providers. This publication is part of a series of good practice guides describing the components of a participatory and area-based approach to rural agroenterprise development.
