“Whenever we discussed about the market, we all used to think about large-scale production and huge market but after attending the training I realized how small markets are also important. Rather than working for the proper functioning of the market of my produce, I aimed on sending my produce to the big market. This training is an eye-opener for me.” Hari Bahadur Bhandari, Setidevi FG
On 22nd March a one-day refresher training for the Market planning committee of Balefi and Sunkoshi took place. with 14 participants 11 from Sunkoshi and 3 from Balefi. Farmers are gradually transitioning to commercialization, which takes time to adjust to. Despite the problems encountered in production, market issues, exacerbate the agricultural problems. The market planning committee received refresher training to address such issues. Dr. Ram Chandra Bhusal, Project Team Leader, discussed the MPC's roles and responsibilities, as well as the collection center's management mechanism. Similarly, Mr.Radha Krishna Shrestha, owner of the Ugrachandi Krishi farm, shared his knowledge of vegetable production and marketing and the collection center's operation mechanism. Likewise, Mr. Karma Lama a local trader from Sunkoshi shared his knowledge of the current market situation in Sunkoshi and Balefi.
The training was successful in bridging the gap between local traders and beneficiaries, which was seen as a motivation for the participants to practice commercial farming.
