It has been a while (three years to be eaxct) since the last large illipe nut season. We work directly with the illipe nut collectors and have contracted over 500 farmers in 20 villages, all accross the province of West Kalimantan. One harvest provides one family the equivalent of 5 months income, in just one month time.
This income boost provides farmers with the opportunity to make investments without having to take a loan. We see examples of people using it for buying solar panels, house repairs or school tuition fees. In one village people even stopped their gold mining activities and switch to collecting illipe nut instead!
