Promote development processes
In many countries, there are great injustices that put local farmers at a disadvantage. Especially in poorer regions of the world, goods for daily use are usually sold by large companies. This is not due to a lack of resources, but because large companies make local farming unprofitable by dumping prices.
Our work starts right there. With the local initiative, we directly support the farmer and thus the entire region. We want to enable the farmer to work profitably. Our goal is to enable the partners to determine their own development process by working for economic, ecological and social progress.
Help for families
Support for farms ensures that family income is increased. This helps families provide better food, clothing and shelter for their children.
Higher incomes enable families in the developing world to afford better healthcare and provide medical care for their families. Children grow up healthier and are less likely to be affected by disease.
Microcredit can also help women in the developing world become more prominent and their economic independence and rights strengthened. As a result, children grow up in families in which women play an active and equal role.
Help for children
Microcredit assistance to farmers in the developing world directly impacts families, especially children, in several ways.
Improving education: Microcredits help children get a better education, as families have the financial means to pay school fees, books and uniforms. The children can thus have better chances for higher education and a better future.
Reduction of child labor: Through microcredit, farmers can expand their farms and become more productive. As a result, they can earn more income and no longer have to send their children to work in the fields to supplement the family income
