Title: Bhutan - Rural Voices - Commercial Agriculture and Resilient Livelihoods Enhancement Programme (CARLEP) - April 2021
Description: A coworker at the bakery of Nutri-Food Products making maize powder from locally supplied organic maize to be used for nutrious and healthy cookies. The rural business was founded by Kinley Penjor and focuses on processing sustainably grown agricultural resources, while ensuring decent incomes of suppliers and further developing the agro-food sector in a rural area of Bhutan. Nutri-Food Products has been supported by IFAD through the Commercial Agriculture and Resilient Livelihoods Enhancement Programme (CARLEP) which aims at sustainably increasing smallholder farmers' incomes and reducing poverty by transforming the rural agricultural economy from a subsistence-based to a market driven sector with a sustainable value chain. Kinley has been interviewed for IFAD’s Rural Voices project and described some of the challenges of his work: Without any automated machines he has difficulties in fulfilling demand and climate change affects his supplying farmers and their harvest which further limits his expansion efforts. He hopes for more support for youth through better education and assistance of young entrepreneurs to enhance youth employment.
