Did you know that turning peanuts into peanut butter yields a ten-fold increase in profit? That’s why we train farmers to add value to their crops. We also bring farmers together in collectives so they can offer produce at a scale that attracts the attention of bigger customers. For example, farmers at some of our Epicentres in Burkina Faso and Senegal sell their produce to the World Food Program and UNICEF. That’s right – not only do these farmers bring in more income for themselves and their families, they’re supplying to international NGOs helping their own people and giving back to their own country. Pretty amazing!
