This project will impact 300 $1-$2 a day farmers. IDE will use over 25 years of experience to provide farmers with tools necessary to move from subsistence farming to commercial farming.


Over 85% of Bangladesh’s 135 million citizens live in rural areas and their livelihoods depend mainly on subsistence farming. The goal of this project is to increase the incomes of 300 farmers by at least $250 a year. This will be achieved through helping farmers participate in commercial markets for high-value crops such as turmeric, ginger and chilies, and helping them to gain access to quality agricultural supplies, such as, seeds, affordable irrigation, fertilizer, and farm training.


Most farmers are familiar with production of a multitude of spices. IDE is facilitating training on harvest and post-harvest techniques. These skills will significantly improve small farmers’ ability to earn the best prices for their spice crops.

Long-Term Impact

This intervention will impact 300 small farmers by enabling them to increase their production and to receive higher prices for their product. The farmers will increase their income as they increase their role in primary processing of the product.
