Thijssen, M.H.

Summary

For seed entrepreneurs, profit is an incentive to sustain seed business, thus increasing the production and availability of seed. The action-learning projects of Integrated Seed Sector Development (ISSD) Africa showed the innovative ways in which seed producers control seed quality and access credit, thereby contributing to entrepreneurship. Even with seed crops with low profit margins, there are ways to make a business.
