Self-development for everyone
In Burkina Faso and the north of Ghana, 80 percent of the population depends on farming. The farmers face desertification and long-lasting drought periods. Other obstacles include a lack of infrastructure and education. Together with our institutional financiers, we are making a difference for disadvantaged rice and onion growers. An important part of this is guiding rural banks in the development of credit products specifically for smallholder farmers. We follow up closely the core capacities of all partners.
Women do value addition on locally produced rice in Burkina Faso
Women in Burkina Faso do all the household chores but have little say in the family budget. They often don't own land, extra income from small-scale trade offers an outlet.
Can we overcome the drought in Burkina Faso?
For nine months in the year it is dry, sandy and hot in Burkina-Faso. Male and female farmers only have small plots and a little water to survive. Trias helps them to get a maximum yield.
Rice in the Sahel?
If the existence of farmers' families is under threat, Trias stands firm. And we do the impossible: efficiently grow rice in the stifling Sahel.
Working night and day against better judgement?
What point is there in working 16 hours a day when nobody tells you about the right production techniques or current market prices? Trias acts with expertise.
Ever heard of smart microcredit?
When farmers and banks use small loans intelligently, agriculture is even profitable in the north of Ghana. Trias proves it.
Making cultural tradition profitable
