Sri Lanka - Smallholder Agribusiness Partnerships Programme (SAPP) – Recipes for Change (R4C) – February 2022
Subramaniam is a farmer in Palapathwela where he lives with his family. His primary source of income is through dairy products made from the cattle’s milk and the production of compost. However, he also grows herbs and spices, coconut and jackfruit. For Subramaniam and his family, the jackfruit is an additional nutritional source, as well as an alternative substitute for primary foods such as rice. Like many farmers, he too has been impacted by climate change, however, with the help of Smallholder Agribusiness Partnerships Programme, Subramanium now has a platform to access financing and business training, which helps him form partnerships with the private sector.
The Smallholder Agribusiness Partnerships Programme (SAPP) aims to raise incomes and improve the quality of diet of over 57,000 smallholder households in Sri Lanka. The program provides a platform for smallholder farmers to access financing and business training, while also helping them to form partnerships with each other and the private sector.
