SIP allows Raintree Farms to pay farmers a competitive monthly income to grow Moringa Oleifera. Having a regular monthly income not only helps the farmer support themselves and their families, it also helps them pay all the expenses associated with commercially farming moringa.
SIP is a win-win for Raintree Farms, its farmers, and the communities they live in. Raintree Farms gains a predictable inventory of raw materials by securing a steady supply from farmers. Farmers benefit by not only receiving commercial farming skills training but also having a regular monthly income that lifts them above the poverty line. Using SIP, Raintree Farms turns subsistence farmers into thriving small-scale members of Uganda’s agricultural economy.
