The Kisan Business School (KBS) approach is a participatory action learning process that involves farmer groups’ participation in agricultural value chains.

As part of capacity strengthening, KBS comprises a series of group- based experiential learning activities over a production-marketing cycle while interacting with other chain actors  and  stakeholders.  KBS aspires to a more profitable pro-poor farm business through market-oriented innovations that   enhance   trust, coordination and collaboration between farmers and other chain actors while empowering men and women farmers, thus ultimately contributing to sustainable livelihoods of targeted farming households.
