Agriculture, food resources and economic catalyst

 If we start with the premise that people are poor because the lack money, the most direct solution to poverty is to provide poor people with jobs paying descent wages or to help farm families generate more incomes from the land they till or from business they run. There’s also indirect solution enabling poor people to save money by providing them with products and services that replace more expensive options.

 

Examples:

 

  • If a poor family gains access to clean water, its health will improve, those family members of employable age will be better to gain and hold jobs, and will save money otherwise used up in buying or paying doctors’ or hospital bills. Money can now be used for better nutrition, school fees, school uniforms, better clothing or home improvements. Similar applies when that family is provided with better nutrition and health.
  • Access to education yields similar benefits, particularly when girls are educated, although usually over a much longer period of time. Educated women gain access to the job market, as educated people in general develop the skills necessary to take on jobs created by the twenty-first century economy. They have fewer children, make wiser choices about how family’s money is spent, and tend to follow good practices for personal hygiene and healthful nutrition. All of which saves money that can be put to more important uses.
  • Poor people themselves always put first priority on making more money because cash in fungible: it can be used to eliminate family hunger, to invest in planting a more lucrative crop, to educate children, to gain access to health care, to replace a leaky thatched roof with corrugated tin or to meet any other pressing need.
  • Increased cash comes only from wages or salaries or greater agricultural productivity enabled by technology, as well as money saved by access to better sanitation and health care.

 

There is a negative trend that is developing in Haiti: Everyone complains, no hope, no production, the country is extremely poor. You can spend the rest of his life to complain nothing will change. The important thing is to start something that could change the conditions of life. "To earn the esteem, it is not necessary to do great things, simply have to try"

 

Being a space for debate, we enjoy to inform you of what we are doing right now as a pilot.

 

 As announced we identified 4 very rich sectors of production: Chicken[WM1] , Moringa, guinea fowl, fish. However, we will track the agribusiness in two main areas after the production scale:

 

1-      The processed of local products: Juice, jelly, jam, coffee oil, tablet, powder, chocolate, honey,  

 

2-      Local consummation: Rice, corn, banana, eggs, fish, goat, chicken, guinea fowl, moringa, vegetable, potatoes, beans,  

 

We take the first step, we invite all those who share the same vision as us to come join us. The only difference, we do not ask for donations, but an investment. That is to say, a person can say: I invested one hand while waiting for a 15% interest a month

 

The investor can choose the option that suits him: the level of investment is $ 200, $ 500, $ 1,000, $ 2,000. An investor may place several investment shares at once or in installments.

 

 It's already gone. We currently have a band of 3000 chickens in production, we have just acquired a local for the restoration, organization of fairs, product processing.

 

On September 22, 2015, we will launch our first agricultural fair.

 

Haiti is a country where agriculture plays a central role in economic development because the majority of poor countries derive their livelihood from the ground. "The only way to have real leaders concerned about the well-being of their fellow citizens to improve the situation of the majority of them is to help them first to increase the productivity of their food and cash crops and then to raise the prices at which they are paid to farmers".

 

 However, for lack of innovation sector is despised. The level of production is decreased to such an extent that the actors are forced to abandon the field to look elsewhere for a so-called wellness. The products are of organic origin could be an important source of food, income and employment to the entire population. So the opportunities are there. Simply well exploit.

 

Our project aims to offer new alternatives are:

 

- Increase domestic production capacity of certain sectors in nutritional value and market

 

- Transformation or processed of products

 

- Consumption:  The objective is to offer to the population of food from local production at low prices

 

- Organize the work by introducing new technologies (cell phones, tablets, PCs, Network, social networks) to facilitate the purchase and sale of products, encourage investment in the sector, and train farmers in managing agro-animals businesses.

 

 

 

- Valuing women's work alongside that of men to achieve genuine gender equality

 

- Reorganize the farming system to achieve better production

    Yes Don, As agreed between you and me, agriculture is the sector with many opportunities for both investors and producers. There must be an intervention calculated on technical angles.

    This is awesome Wilfrid! As you know, my intent with The Toussaint Technology Group is to leverage technology into the agriculture sector wherever it makes sense, where it solves a real problem, and adds value to the process and the country.
