Profit Squared sought Yellow Wood’s assistance in developing a case study of a goat meat value chain project supported by Heifer International in Nepal, for use in training Heifer International staff on a wealth creation approach to development. Yellow Wood worked with Heifer International Nepal to prepare the case study which included information on the context of the work and its relevance to Nepal, an overview of the entire value chain, progress to date in building the value chain on the ground, and lessons learned in testing assumptions, developing tools, and changing market flows.
