Title: Sri Lanka - Smallholder Tea and Rubber Revitalization Project (STARR) – December 2021
Description: Ashini has become a role model for vanilla farming. She received a loan in 2020 from the STaRR project and is now on track to earn an income from her vanilla pods. She has several potential buyers, and her expected harvest is 50 kg, which will allow her to pay back her loan facilitated by the project in less than two years. In five years, she expects to harvest 500 kg of vanilla, exponentially increasing her income.

The IFAD-funded Smallholder Tea and Rubber Revitalization Project aims to improve food security, increase incomes, and strengthen the resilience of poor rural people in Sri Lanka, all while ensuring that the smallholders are the key decision-makers of the project. By promoting organization among smallholders to produce and market tea, supporting them in improving rubber production and processing, seeking a better link to markets, and facilitating smallholders’ access to rural financing, this project will benefit approximately 32,000 smallholder households.
