USAID allots P20 million for Deliver-e expansion

The U.S. Agency for International Development is allocating a grant of close to 20 million pesos for the future improvement of a digital platform linking Luzon farmers to buyers in Metro Manila.

At the launch of Deliver-e, USAID Philippines acting mission director Patrick Wesner said the agency recognizes the potential of the platform to sustain and accelerate economic activity in the country.

Deliver-e is a digital platform connecting farmers to buyers through an efficient end-to-end market-based system. It operates via sophisticated blockchain technology made by a Filipino tech startup, Insight Supply Chain Solutions.

The platform integrates e-commerce and logistics application services from consolidation point to a central warehousing facility, then to last-mile delivery services to reach end-clients.

It allows consumers to access to agricultural products by eliminating the layers of traders. It is a win-win strategy for both farm producers and consumers.
