We are a startup with the aim of helping farmers live a dignified life!
The sad reality is, there are still 3 million Filipino farming household living in extreme poverty. In fact, before they even plant a single seed, they are already in debt. These farmers rely on high interest loans from traders, their current farming system produces low yield, and lastly they have no direct access to market. All these result to farmers’ daily income of only P125/day.
Farmvocacy runs an inclusive sustainable business model that provides growers with training on climate-smart, environment-friendly and high-yielding farming system. With the increase in yield and Farmvocacy's e-commerce platform, our grower partners are now able to have access to guaranteed market who buys their produce at a fair price thereby increasing their income from P125/day to almost P500/day.
