TALIA FARMS ORGANICS:
THE KEY TO REVENUE GENERATION AND PROFIT SHARING
USING ALL AVAILABLE TOOLS TO END POVERTY
To end poverty among farming families who often live on $1.25 a day, we are committed to using the most effective, efficient and sustainable solutions available. One such solution is the public / private partnership (PPP) which brings to bear the best tools both sectors offer.
The nonprofit sector has tremendous knowledge and skills in areas of working with small-scale farmers to increase their productivity and quality of their produce; and to build vibrant communities with an improved quality of life to retain residents – especially the younger generation – rather than see them lose hope and move to the city’s slums where life is harsh and dangerous.
The private sector has tremendous knowledge and skills in areas of marketing, sales, market trends, profit generation and competitiveness. Although our story is a wonderful tale of courageous small-scale farmers and their families who are determined to lift themselves out of poverty; and of buyers helping to make small farms a success by purchasing our products – still, when competing globally against large, industrial farms, we must have the same level of professionalism and competitiveness as they do to succeed.
Together these two sectors offer the best tools to improve the lives of people who have lived in deeply entrenched poverty for generations.
