Delivering agricultural financing, marketing, and training to farmers in southern Tanzania.
Iringa Hope uses a unique model to deliver agricultural financing, marketing, and training to smallholder farmers in Tanzania. The organization develops self-governed and self-sustaining member owned and operated cooperative societies that help to alleviate poverty and empower agricultural entrepreneurs.
Rural Iringa’s average annual family income is $300, but an Iringa Hope member is able to triple that income by tripling their agricultural yields. There are currently 3200 cooperative members improving their livelihoods, impacting their communities, and developing the regional economy.
In Memory: Rev. Paul H. Harris
We are saddened to share that Rev. Paul Harris, Iringa Hope co-founder and member of the Iringa Hope Board of Directors, passed away on February 14, 2022.
