A COMPREHENSIVE INITIATIVE TO SUPPORT FARMERS AND VULNERABLE HOUSEHOLDS

SAJIDA’s innovative approach supported vulnerable households with emergency relief while protecting livelihoods of small-scale farmers and poultry dairies in the process. To address the breakdown in the supply chain, SAJIDA purchased food items including rice, vegetables, seasonal fruits, milk, and poultry items directly from farmers at a fair price.  These were then packaged and redistributed to vulnerable Microfinance members, daily wage earners, indigenous groups (including Saotal, Pahan, Urao, Barman community of Chapai Nawabganj, Hazong community of Netrokona, Garo community of Netrokona, Sherpur, and Jamalpur) and other ethnic minorities (River Nomad (Bede), Transgender group, Sex-workers, and Bihari community). In locked areas, cash grants were provided to beneficiaries for purchasing food and hygiene material using mobile financial services.
