The Challenge

Accountability :- High friction for transacting across Mandi’s (LA from one statedoesn’t sell across a lucrative CA in another state or other region) isdue to social trust.A supplier usually works with just4-5 buyers that he trusts. The trust deficit prevents free tradeand inhibits competition. This alsonecessitates multiple middlemen who bridge the trust gap?

Credit crunch:- Traders with better revenues have more elastic Demand for credit working capital credit would help them multiply their business as they can source more produce from suppliers by paying upfront.CAs cannot avail cash discounts from LAs due to unavailability of cash for upfront payments.CAs sell their good forward at significant discount against instant payment from retailer to manage credit cycle.

Wastage are the big issues:- Due to un-reliability of suppliersand their departure of goods,buyers tend to buy in excess tomanage their inventory 10-15% of this excess supply tends to go waste on a daily basis if the buyer is assured that he gets supply on a timely basis, we can prevent this wastage in the industry
