MyRain was formed out of The Acara Institue business plan competition in 2010. Tasked with solving water security problems in India, MyRain was inspired by the potential of efficient drip irrigation systems. In many parts of rural India, small-plot farmers rely on flood irrigation, a method that stunts crops and washes away valuable soil nutrients. Drip irrigation can increase efficiency of water and fertilizer by between 20%-50% and increase yields by 30%-100%. Drip irrigation also preserves nutrients in the soil and increases land longevity. Despite these benefits, drip irrigation technology has proliferated to only 5% of arable land. MyRain launched to provide small plot farmers access to this technology by creating a retail and distribution network focused on the four main tenets of accessibility; education, availability, price and service.

The Community Markets Purchasing Real and Affordable (Compra)


United States of America

Community Markets Purchasing Real and Affordable (COMPRA) Foods is a purchasing cooperative project that creates an alternative food distribution system for small grocers and convenience stores in food desert neighborhoods in Los Angeles. There is currently a large disconnect in the food system in these communities. Small food retailers in the Promise Zone often source their food products from big box grocers paying full price for these products and then marking them up for sale in their own establishments. This often occurs because entrepreneurs lack relationships with distributors who can deliver produce to their businesses at wholesale prices. Small and mid size farmers who may be interested in selling their produce directly to these establishments also lack the relationships and efficient distribution systems that can connect them to the hundreds of stores in low income food deserts.This service gap between growers distribution companies and small food retailers impacts low income consumers tremendously.

Treebos


Treebos uses a vertically integrated model to reorganize the financing production and produce distribution of small farms. rnrnTreebos.com enables web users to plant virtual trees online that represent actual fruit trees that Treebos plants in small farms in Brazil. Subscribers watch their trees grow online and get regular updates. They also purchase subscriptions that deliver the organic fruit sourced from these trees or local sustainable farms to their homes and offices. This creates a new source of web aggregated capital that subsistence farmers use to rebuild their agri businesses using organic methods and increase their income. rnrnTreebos addresses massive inefficiencies in Brazilian agriculture and supply chains up to 40% of produce gets lost on the way from the farm to table and the farmer gets only around 7% of the final market price. Brazil alone has over 3 million subsistence farms that lack access to productive investment and security of sale. Treebos creates an efficient supply chain and connects urban users directly with rural farmers paying farmers 60% more in the process. It also provides subscribers with their personal social and environmental impact metrics.
