Limited access to guaranteed markets is one of the priority constraints hindering smallholder farmer commercialisation and general development of agricultural value chains. Often, for countries with self-sufficiency of some agricultural commodities, national markets are not sufficient to motivate farmers to increase productivity, allocate more land to certain crop or maintain harvest quality for increased incomes. In absence of alternative markets, smallholder farmers are unable to earn decent incomes from their agricultural enterprises. The impact of limited access to markets is not only at individual farmer level, but also weakens farmer institutions such as cooperatives that bring these farmers together to benefit from economies of scale.
