Growth perspectives for everyone
Brazil is an emerging nation, but inequality remains a serious problem. Less than 2 percent of the agricultural businesses own 55 percent of the total farmland. With the support of Trias and our institutional financiers, smallholder farming is on the rise: in recent years, our partners in Paraná have enabled thousands of disadvantaged farming families to open their first savings account and to access loans for buying seeds, livestock and equipment. We are now also applying our successful method in the northern states of the country. We follow up closely the core capacities of all partners.
Space for family farmers in Brazil
The dominant agricultural model in Brazil is based on large-scale production of bulk. By way of alternative we increase the effectiveness of family agriculture.
Not every Brazilian is called Ronaldo
In Brazil increasingly more youngster are able to dream of having their business. But the recession and a lack of start-up capital are huge obstacles for many. Trias helps these youngsters.
(Self) respect for Brazilian women
In Brazil 5,000 women are murdered every year, in the countryside particularly machismo rules. We empower women by supporting their economic activities.
