Reward Farmers

Rice cultivation is hard work. Expecting smallholder farmers to also excel at milling, logistics, and sales is unrealistic. We reward farmers for their dedication by purchasing their harvests at a premium. For farmers, having a guaranteed buyer reduces their risk and workload given they no longer need to engage in processing, marketing, and distribution. Getting paid fairly at harvest also enables them to pay back old loans for inputs, plant a second rice harvest, purchase livestock, or grow high-value, nutritious vegetables. Our farming partners also commit to improving their production practices and along with our NGO partners, we provide them with technical and capacity building support.
