This week, Propcom Mai-karfi facilitated trainings on the use of a web-based monitoring system for Notore’s Senior Village Promoters (SVP) in Kano, Zamfara, Sokoto, Gombe and Kaduna states. The monitoring system designed by INL Limited enables accurate data collection and helps Propcom Mai-karfi to verify data emerging from its partnership with Notore Chemicals Limited.
Propcom Mai-karfi partners with Notore to increase access to fertilisers for smallholder farmers in northern Nigeria. Collection of accurate and prompt information on numbers of new farmers accessing fertilisers have proven a challenge for the intervention, hampering effective results measurement. INL’s system allows SVPs to enter key information into tablets and upload to a central database as they transact their business. The training for SVPs covered how to use the tablet, data entry, and basic report production using the web-based application.
