Malawi Start-Up

Agricultural land in Malawi is suffering greatly from climate change. Agriculture is based on rainfall. The soil’s low productivity and low water retention capacity combined with water scarcity pose major problems for farmers.

Our approach

Many farmers in Malawi are organized in cooperatives. Based on their previous experience, our Malawi team has good connections with these communities. The goal is to reestablish the connections and, in cooperation with the chairmen of the cooperatives, to initiate pilot projects and develop business models with volunteer farmers, in the spirit of betterSoil.
