We look for places where environmental vulnerability and unmet financial need are great. We find businesses that are doing the most to address those conditions. And we support them so they can do even more.
Why agricultural enterprises?Agricultural enterprises provide farmers with fertilizer, better seed varieties, and training on agricultural methods. They connect farmers to international markets where their crops fetch a better price. They help farmers achieve higher and more stable incomes so they can lead lives of greater freedom and dignity.These enterprises also improve ecosystem conservation by linking farmers to green markets, providing assistance on sustainable farm practices, and encouraging clean technologies.
