The 7 Sustainable Development Goals
At Empower World Wide we provide input financing combine it with capacity building, bring the inputs to a walkable distance for every farmer and link our farmers to market. We call this the complete bundle of services for our farmers. In all our programs, we want to put farmers at the forefront to enable them benefit from the holistic program that we offer. Our field officers reach out to farmers in their gardens, in their homes, in their groups and we get muddy as we improve farming in our areas of operation. We organize our farmers into small groups at village level this is where we think change starts from. We provide them with inputs on credit and farmers have the option to pay back anytime throughout the season. Our farmers also have the option to pay back in terms harvests.
Our program enables farmers to store their harvests and sell during good seasons when they can earn more profits. We provide quality and improved planting materials and fertilizers and strengthen the capacity of our farmers to use modern improved farming techniques. We are continuously improving our delivery through innovations as we aim to serve as many farmers as possible. We also cooperate with government agencies and other partners in food production. Our aim is to help farmers multiply their food production and harvests and also earn more profit on the unit sold. This we believe will greatly improve their livelihoods and transform communities. Our approach and modal enables sustainable impact to the farmers.
