By building businesses using a market-driven approach working with large companies, with value-added support from an expert central team, we are able to eliminate many of the risks and barriers that prevent social businesses focused on economic development from being successful. Our experience as social business builders across multiple countries allows us to replicate the model in new geographies to increase our impact.
To small farmers and fishers, we provide end-to-end support from training to financing to guaranteed crop purchase. This significantly increases their incomes, providing a path out of poverty.
To buyers, we provide sustainably sourced, high quality local products that meet the volume and quality requirements of supermarkets, retailers, and other buyers at competitive prices.
To impact investors, we offer a pipeline of innovative social investment opportunities supported by best-in-class teams.
To philanthropists, we offer a way to support smallholder economic development with guaranteed market linkages, and ensure sustainable livelihood improvements for poor communities in a highly cost-effective way, supported by monitoring and evaluation.
To organizations working in agriculture, we consult on best practices and social impact, and provide thought leadership on replicating similar models.
