Business Model Canvas
Before getting started, Agnes sat down with the farmers to explain the concept of a
business plan. She shared an example Business Model Canvas to demonstrate how each
part of the business plan fits together. Visualizing the parts of a business plan helped the
farmers to understand how a business plan is built from basic parts.
