INCOME GENERATION SUPPORT
To resolve a fundamental problem of poverty, we run a cooperative association of local residents as a part of our business for local development to give them an increased income. Along with this, we aid local residents to become more self-sufficient by establishing and managing a social enterprise that provides economical and social values, as well as supporting infrastructure.
Our story of Corn Farming in Malawi
We may enjoy corn as a side dish, but for people in Malawi, it is their daily meal. However, the soil in Malawi is not optimal for growing corn. Due to a low output of corn, they live in financial difficulty no matter how much effort they put into the corn farm. Because of this, Good Neighbors has created a plan to increase the quality and quantity of crops. Farmers who are registered in the Good Neighbors’ income generation cooperatives were given fertilizers and healthy seeds, and taught cultivation techniques. To store and keep up with the increased quantity of corn, a common warehouse was built. The local farmers in Malawi are now able to receive the money proportional to the amount of work they have put in.
