Business Information Services (Tanzania)
Business Information Services (BIS) changes the lives of Tanzanian farmers and is a pioneering project that seeks to empower farmers and strengthen rural economies through e-business, and to help transform the country from an essentially agrarian economy to a more knowledge-based society. The project hopes to rally farmers to form a national product market, in a bid to curtail the activities of profiteering middlemen. Learn more about this innovative activity.
