Since 2012, we have been working in Burundi as the local brand Tubura - serving smallholder farmers in the country to break from the cycle of subsistence living, grow more food, and enhance their overall quality of life.

 Recently, our Burundi program marked a 50% growth as we expanded to meet the high demand for our program.

Approximately 70% of smallholder farmers, who form the core of Burundi's agricultural sector, continue to experience food insecurity due to less effective farming techniques and limited access to quality farming inputs. .

How We Serve Farmers

We provide farmers with access to loans for seeds, fertilizers, and lifestyle products such as solar lights, and training on efficient farming practices. To supplement our regular bundle of services, we also focus on ways to broaden our impact, including:

  • Supporting commercialization: We offer our services to farmer cooperative groups that are set up by the Burundi government.
  • Expanding agroforestry options: This supports rural farmers in generating additional income while also benefiting the environment and improving soil health.
  • Exploring crop commercialization initiatives: This is an impactful income diversification strategy for rural subsistence farmers.
