Problem or Opportunity
Emerging Markets are chaotic:
Assets people and value are:
- Unverified & Undocumented
- Corrupt corporations sell fake and unverified products
Unstructured & Informal
- Shady middle men skim off profits and margin
- Face-to-Face, Analogue & Cash-Based
- No record of who has paid for what
WHO CAN BE TRUSTED in the informal market supply chains?
