Raised capital and provided Technical Assistance to empower women and develop fair trade organic farming in Indonesia.
Aliet Green is Indonesia’s first supplier of fair trade coconut palm sugar. The Impact Enterprise (IE) certifies farmers in organic and fair trade farming practices and improves their working conditions through the provision of safe climbing equipment, and training in staff knowledge.
Aliet Green aims at empowering women to participate on a central role in the ecological, social and economic framework of the agricultural society in Indonesia. Contributing a portion of sales proceeds toward education scholarships, health insurance and public sanitation facilities for the entire community, Aliet Green also further impacts communities by making a deliberate effort to hire local unskilled women.
IIX, a vetted TA partner of the ACTS program, formulated the company’s business plan, financial model and investor pitch. Through IIX’s Impact Partners, Aliet Green ultimately secured a loan from an overseas investor within a few months. The funds will not only ramp up production capacity but also start a childcare centre for employees. With scale, Aliet Green will spearhead efforts to make organic agriculture a viable alternative for small farmers.
