Comment on contract farming
SoGB is also involved in the production and purchase from local farmers who run village rubber tree plantations. Typically, a development bank will finance the village plantations’ start up costs with the help of SoGB. Once they begin producing rubber, SoGB buys all the rubber, enabling the village farmers to have a substantial, constant revenue all year and to repay the development loans. An oil palm tree smallholders’ programme will be initiated. The development banks involved in this scheme are AFD (Agence Française de Développement), FISDES (Fonds Ivoiro-Suisse de Développement Economique et Social) and DEG (Deutsche Investions Und Entwicklungsgesellschaft). Smallholder produce over 50% of the rubber.
