BOP에 들어갈 나이지리아의 민간 부문에 대한 시간

문제: 나이지리아 민간 부문의 잘 알려진 궁지로 간다, 귀하의 전파와 라인까지 (about Bottom of the pyramid or BoP, 가난한 또는 포괄적 인 시장 시장), 이 개념에 맞게 진화하는 비즈니스 모델을 - 그것은이 분야는 다른 곳에서 무슨 일이 일어나고 있는지 채택 할 수 없습니다 시간, 유예로? 관심있는 기업은 기대해야하는지에 대한 교육을 지원하십시오 - M. 이브라힘

As a way of helping out, a typical Nigerian entrepreneur should consider what is contained here, as hints towards venturing into Bottom of the pyramid (BOP) marketing, markets for poor or inclusive business, from a Nigerian perspective. No time is more auspicious than now for the private sector here to get into this area which is fast gaining ground globally. The following is an excerpt of my much earlier piece in the series of articles aimed at trying to raise awareness about how doing business with the poor can be good for poor people and also good for business through this concept, titled, "나이지리아 피라미드 마케팅 작업의 바닥을 만들기":

Time for Nigeria’s Private Sector to Get into BOP

“In consonance with what I have been propagating all this while, 국가 통계국의 최근 보고서 (NBS) 에 대해 그것이있다 113 추정 된의 만 160 만 나이지리아는 빈곤에 살고있는 -에서 $1 하루에. 중 너무 많은 거기에 포함, 나라의 북동부와 북서부 학적 영역은 함께 가장 높은 빈곤율을 기록 77.7 %와 76.3 %를 각각, 동안 90% 소 코토 국가의 인구의 가난으로 분류되었다. 보코 하람의 활동에 의해 간다 (이슬람 테러 단체) 주로이 분야에서, 하나는 쉽게 빈곤과 불안의 수준 사이의 링크를 해독 할 수. 이, 나이지리아의 다른 많은 부분에서 불안의 발생, 그것은 빈곤 수준이 당황 급증에 따른 방향으로 노를에 정부가 휴식을하지 말아야하는 이유 주요 이유를 포함한다, 국가의 경제가 성장하면서. My ‘preaching’ on giving attention to markets for poor (M4P) or Bottom of the pyramid (BOP) marketing is indeed very relevant at this time.”

Another from that titled, “Any Nigeria’s self-exclusion from inclusive markets?” bears this: “…I had similar concern about Nigeria being conspicuously out of the global picture, 여러 게시를 거쳐. 그것은 관련 활동은 남쪽과 남동 아시아 국가에 더 초점을 맞추고 있다고 눈부신했다 (인도와의 600 만 가난한 서 밖으로); 다음 남미. Within Africa, 남아프리카 공화국 관련 비즈니스 모델을위한 플랫폼을 제공합니다, 뿐만 아니라 남부 아프리카에서 다른 나라로. 어떤 일이 거의 나이지리아 관련이 없다, 비즈니스 모델의 응용 프로그램으로, in publications and other materials on this subject.”

These are pointers to the need for the Nigerian government to commence giving serious considerations to BoP related issues, as part of the much chorused “efforts aimed at alleviating poverty”. While one hopefully looks forward to a “shift of gear’’ on the part of government, this question seems to be glued to my mindWhat about the private sector in Nigeria?

It is no longer news that the private sector in Nigeria, especially enterprises involved in manufacturing, seems to be taking a bashing. Without reeling out the numerous problems which give one cause not to envy ventures in this sector at this time – a period when we are informed of an impressive 7.68 percent Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth rate, but we know that manufacturing capacity is as low as 30 percent, with other parameters of growth nowhere near this GDP rating; poverty figure climbed from 15 percent in the 1960s, 과 54 percent by 2004, to almost 70 percent presently. To me, this epitomises spurious economic growth while poverty stares us all in the face.

As private sector concerns mainly in the Americas (US, Canada especially) and Europe have become awakened to the realization that businesses can also benefit from alleviating poverty through innovative business models that could bring ‘goodies’ to the poor, the same sector in Nigeria should go a step further (from typical corporate social responsibility efforts, and selling cheap goods to the poor) to deriving excess production capacities and seeking growth opportunities which abound in these markets, where the poor constitute essential parts of the value chain. The private sector in Nigeria should shift from resting on its oars at these challenging times, to imbibing ingenuity (especially preparedness to ‘think out of the box’) – Shift into inclusive market.

Who says looking in the direction of BoP (though a fairly uncharted area in the country presently) will not provide a desired succour? This piece, hopefully, will aid ventures in Nigeria contemplating ‘taking a plunge’ into evolving business models for BoP, through hints on how-to-get-it-right. This is without delving into details of steps and strategies applicable, as one is mindful of space constraints. What remains vital is a Nigerian entrepreneur’s realisation that this concept, as a market creation approach to development, embodies stra­tegy which combines these aims: (a) Supplying poor people useful and affordable products with a high poverty alleviation impact, 과 (B) Creating a viable business as a private delivery channel, preferably to be run by poor people.

The private sector here should always realize these three key elements in market creation approach to development: (1) Need-based product development – Having focus on high impact on poverty alleviation (with affordability and returns on investment being essentials); (2) The promotion and marketing of these products for the poor to know about their existence; 과 (3) Creating a market for these products (To the extent of being viable for the private sector to deliver them as a business). Don’t hesitate to contact me for more information on any related area.

For a start, in order to fit in appropriately, the intended operator must imbibe these to make it work – Being a part of the response to local conditions through identifying opportunities, to come up with solutions, as an agent of change for human development. (계속하려면)

  1. Hello Annie, Nice piece! There is a new wave ofcapitalismgrowing globally which involves business operating profitably through creating opportunities for poor people in the value chain of their core business. This is called inclusive business but I call itSociocapitalism” . I believe it is the way forward especially for developing countries. Some of these models are working in Nigeria but in different shapes and forms with no clear definition. A few entrepreneurs/businesses in Nigeria consciously engage in such models while others consider it business as usual. Hence it seems as though Nigeria is missing in the scheme of things. To an extent we are as many more businesses need to engage in doing pro-poor business. You could check out http://www.businesssinnovationfacility.org for some examples supported by the Business Innovation Facility, Where I work.

    A major challenge however for such models in Nigeria is the inadequate of infrastructure and sustainable policies which contributes to high cost of doing business in Nigeria. However the opportunities such models abound. Manoeuvring this tough terrain to deliver profitable pro-poor business models requires innovation. Innovation does not necessarily connote IT . Simply rethinking current systems and processes within a company with aim of tapping into the huge BOP market in Nigeria, might just trigger an innovation.
