HER Farming Cooperative

Commitment by

One Village Planet-Women's Development Initiative

In 2011, One Village Planet - Women's Development Initiative (OVP-WDI) committed to expand the Haitian Economic Response (HER) Farming Cooperative in Derac, an impoverished rural village in Haiti, in order to increase market options for its small-scale farmers. Through the provision of increased land access, improved agricultural infrastructure, and expanded market position, OVP-WDI will enable the HER Cooperative to cultivate vegetables, herbs, fruits, and spices, so that the group will be able to sell these products to local hotels and restaurants. With this commitment, OVP-WDI aims to address the community's food poverty issues by enabling the 213 members of the cooperative to transition from subsistence farming to income generation.
