First strategy is to use upgrading (Upgrading is like innovation and refers to innovation in the relative context) as value chain development option for improving the participation and revenue of small rural/tribal producers with following approach:
1) Process upgrading (to organise productive activities more efficiently within individual links in the chain and between links in the chain)
2) Product upgrading (to achieve higher prices through improved quality or quantity, value addition, standards, or certification)
3) Functional upgrading (to acquire new functions and, hence, higher margins, which were previously functions of forward chain actors).
4) Market upgrading (to identify new or untapped consumers, as well as to improve access to already existing markets).

This is followed by providing poor, marginalized and vulnerable women with knowledge in customized business services (skill in packaging, entrepreneurship training in adding value, financial literacy and market linkages and use of passive RFID bracelets for tracking in value chain) The idea is to significantly increase the income due to increase in production and quality of product and services. This then increases the economic status as well will enable women to participate in decision making in meaningful business.

I make sure that Value chains in rural/ tribal regions are influenced by a set of specificities which provide comparative advantages, but at the same time present challenges in reaping the higher returns. These specificities, such as the availability of unique and niche products and services, limited accessibility, fragility, diversity, and marginality, have a strong impact on value chain analysis and the selection of value chain development options.
My value chain approach implemented in rural/ tribal regions using passive RFID bracelets has made remote and disaggregated production, which lacks volume and downstream market access to more viable and it is becoming a knowledge, technology, and opportunities for further processing and value addition.
