Strategies for International Development helps poor farmers graduate from poverty by helping them build successful farm businesses that increase their income. This includes conserving the natural resources upon which their agro-businesses depend and helping women play an equal role in building these businesses.
SID has been successful helping farmers increase their income and graduate from poverty. We measure results in terms of increases in farmers’ income and cost-effectiveness as the ratio of the increases in farmer income to project cost. The ratios of increases in farmer income to cost of our projects have ranged from 4.1 to 8.68.
