Project Summary

India is a country of 1.4 billion people with around 85.7 % residing in remote areas of the nation. Literacy rate in rural sectors is just not the leading cause for progress- it is also the lack of infrastructure and accessibility of urban markets to these places. While some communities are educated to identify the tools and resources that are readily available to use, most communities are not capable of investing in infrastructure that helps them connect to outside network of businesses and communities . Thus, their perception of Demographic Changes, odd buying behaviour, the general lack of trust in newer forms of markets, coupled with Illiteracy adds to their inhibitions. The solution is to establish a community run network that barters information & assets on a need basis to these communities. Samavayika establishes a chain of entrepreneurs that work with these communities, consulting them - connecting them to a self-sustaining network.

Problem Statement

There is a growing concern for different communities in the rural region that are reliant on seasonal change or a dependent on the performance of their surroundings. Expectedly, these people shy from exploring the new trends of growing markets. Their perception of Demographic Changes & odd buying behavior, the general lack of trust in newer forms of markets, coupled withIlliteracy adds to their inhibitions. This is where Samavayika introduces a solution, RMAAS or Remote Marketing as a Service. RMAAS aims to train and develop 2 million Micro Entrepreneurs across India. These micro entrepreneurs are divided into two categories. The first category receives a preliminary training on the utility of the services where they play a big role in bridging the gap between the consumers and the market. They collect the requirements from the local consumers, and deliver the same at the best prices available. The other category of Micro entrepreneurs are trained in specialised services and reach the market through the general entrepreneurs. Thus a supply chain system is formed where everything passes through the general entrepreneurs. Samavayika eventually becomes a network of networks, facilitating economic growth and social upliftment.

Solution Overview

The ecosystem and its stakeholders would be able to take advantage of the hyperlocal services, catering specifically to their problem set. Geographically understanding deficits within an ecosystem and matching demand and supply a primary service and additionally supporting them through consultation, each incumbent would be able to sustain themselves. The dependency on intermediaries is the obstacle within the rural ecosystem, processes are now more drawn out and at each stage which in-turn reduces the overall revenue. The aim is to promote self-sustainability within ecosystems using different ecosystems. Geography is the main factor, populations have managed to adapt to their surroundings and by doing so have managed to reap the benefits of their ecosystem, therefore it is not entirely population agnostic but rather geographically centric, connecting markets through a network across regions.
