Working to deliver higher impact

During the first planting season of 2016, 520 farmers are expected to register with the iF Foundation’s agricultural program to produce groundnuts, rice and corn. Different from the 2015 planting seasons, iF will be providing technical support to groups of farmers (10-15) as opposed to individual farmers. This strategy will enable the program to deliver higher impact to the farmers. In addition, developing a producer organization will enable iF to reduce overhead (i.e.: number of producers per technician) and to create new markets for farmers’ produce through higher availability of produce.
