Kwale Cotton

Kwale, Kenya
Partners

The Cotton On Group in partnership with Business for Development and Base Titanium have undertaken a pilot program to grow its own cotton sourced directly from farmers in Kenya. Working with 200 farming families at present, our aim is to increase incomes to $1500 per annum from current subsistence farming.

IronBark

Savannakhet, Laos
Partners

Ironbark Citrus in partnership with MMG and Business for Development have set up an inclusive business in Laos to enable farmers to earn greater incomes by supplying citrus fruits to regional markets. Working with a pilot group of farmers, our aim is to increase incomes to $3,000 per annum. This represents a tenfold increase in income for farmers formerly living in extreme poverty, earning less than $1.25 per day.

Highlands Pork Company

Central Province, Papua New Guinea
Partners

Commissioned by Oil Search Ltd, we are trialling a local piggery enterprise in PNG that will enable root crops to be utilised for pig feed, outgrowers to breed pigs, and a commercial partnership to supply pork-meat to local markets. Designed to engage existing farmers in the highlands of PNG, the aim of the project is to increase incomes to $1,500 per annum for farmers currently living in extreme poverty.

Syngenta Good Growth Plan

Vietnam
Partners

Business for Development is working closely with Syngenta in South East Asia to help the company achieve its goal of increasing the productivity of 20 million smallholder farmers by 50% by 2020 as part of the company’s Good Growth Plan.
