Commitment to Action

Impact Farming in Haiti

Commitment by

Smallholder Farmers Alliance (SFA)

In 2014, the Smallholder Farmers Alliance committed to scaling its proven business model in Haiti to work with 2,000 small-scale farmers in the St. Michel de l'Attalaye area. The Smallholder Farmers Alliance will: 1) provide training to farm leaders to diversify their agricultural activities, improve productivity by 40 to 50% and increase income; 2) provide environmental education for the children of farmers so that the next generation values trees and protects nature; and 3) facilitate the participation of women in agriculture through micro-credit programs. Over a period of three years, the operation will transition into an independent agro-forestry and 1.8 million trees will be planted, addressing deforestation issues in Haiti.
