Project Alba

Project Alba is a for-profit startup with a vision to have all small-holder farmers and their families in developing countries thrive in a sustainable way. Our mission is to increase the income of farmers living close to the poverty line.

We started working in Cambodia on 2011 by putting in place an advanced contract farming business model. Between 2011 and 2014, the techniques, contracts and sales channels were developed by working with about 20 farmers. Since 2015, we have been scaling the activity.

On average we help farmers more than double their income, compared to a total annual income of approximately USD800  before they started the partnership.

We currently employ 30 staff members, 25 Cambodian and five foreign nationals.
