Challenge

Small, marginal farmers eking an existence in the countryside are getting poorer everyday with harvest becoming scarce, production controlled by middlemen and the prices of farming inputs very high. There is a need to support them in order to improve their welfare and that they are able to contribute fully to community-building.

Solution

Farming inputs especially vegetable and crop seeds like corn are difficult to access by small, marginal farmers. They also lack farm tools to cultivate their farms and some of their farm tools are already old and need repairs. Organic fertilizer and pesticides is also difficult to procure. There is a need to provide them with pump-priming supplies in order to improve their farming and increase their incomes.

Long-Term Impact

Productive farmers are able to contribute to positive welfare in their communities. They are able to participate in community-building and be actively engaged in local affairs. This can happen when they are living in a sustainable way with incomes able to support them.
