Rahel Wubie, Girma Kassie, Aynalem Haile, Jane Wamatu, Barbara Rischkowsky. (22/12/2018). Business Models for Selected Interventions for the Development of Small Ruminant Value Chains in Ethiopia. Ethiopia: International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
This document presents business models for three best-bet interventions identified, tested and recommended in selected sites of unique characteristics in the small ruminant value chains in Ethiopia. These interventions were sheep fattening, ram selection and market information systems. The document aims at availing initial ideas for interested business and researchers on the potential of the best bets as business interventions in the sites where they were tested for up to four years. There is no deliberate intention to prescribe the way the businesses shall be designed and implemented. The business models will however be useful starting points for anyone who intends to make a meaningful investment on any one or more of the best bets.
