What we do
SHIFT and Great Lakes Coffee are exploring the concept of a "living income" for coffee farmers in Western Uganda.
A living income is the money earned by a farmer from his/her produce, after all costs and taxes have been deducted, that enables that farmer and his/her family to afford a decent standard of living.
SUSTAINABLE LIVING INCOMES
The Sustainable Living Income Program supports increased income and productivity for coffee farmers, while safeguarding environmental and social assets for the future.
By working together with different partners along the supply chain we improve quality, volume and profitability, while helping smallholder farmers to improve their livelihoods and raise their incomes.
