The merging of supply chain management and the internet has taken an important role as a mean for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to cut their delivery cost,exposing their business into a global market. Malaysian small-scale farmers are linked to a traditional markets limited to its neighborhood. Though the existing number of Rural Internet Centers (RICs) all over Malaysia has improved Information and Communication Technology (ICT) literacy among rural community, observations have shown that these centers have not yet been utilized as a mean to make business. The purpose of this project is to propose a requirement model for small-scale farmers in Kedah State to merge the traditional supply chain with the use the RICs as an electronic business centre in view of linking them to the global market as a cheap mean of market and distribution. The requirement model will have two main actors: customer and supplier as small-scale farmer. The supplier will be represented by the system administrator. The model intends to integrate customers, suppliers, products and process order records in a central database.
