Don’t Get It Twisted Supplying to WFP Can Bankrupt You in A Heartbeat

The consequences of the performance bond, placed on WFP suppliers, is something no one ever wants to speak about. That along with the bureaucratic payment process, which some have told me may require a flight to the regional offices, is something many traders may be oblivious to. I have known this for many years but have been quiet. Unfortunately, I am seeing more and more institution pushing women in agribusiness towards this, oblivious to the risk of bankruptcy placed on many African women entrepreneurs.
