Help with Unexpected Losses
A mortuary fund was created for farmers in the case of an unexpected death in the family.
Fair Trade premium funds were used to deliver a food basket to each family on a monthly basis.
Bonus for Producers
Producers receive additional payment per box for harvesting organic products, providing producers a bonus incentive for adopting environmentally and socially friendly harvesting techniques.
Health and Insurance Programs
Members and their families attended a workshop on preventative health practices and nutrition. The organization has also used Fair Trade premiums to secure accidental insurance for farmers in case of injury or disability.
