Since March 2011, Mercy-USA for Aid and Development has been providing livestock, feed-production machines, rice, corn and sweet potato seeds, fertilizer, and training to farming families in three provinces of Indonesia. Mercy-USA is also supporting and assisting these farmers to form cooperatives.
According to the International Fund for Agricultural Development, about 70% of the Indonesian people live in rural areas where farming is the main source of income. While Indonesia has finally climbed up to the status of a middle-income country, poverty is increasingly concentrated in the rural parts of the county and accounts for a higher percentage of poor compared to urban centers. Despite the richness of the land, millions of small farmers, agro-workers and fishermen are unable to tap into the opportunities available to them due to financial restrictions and lack of access to modern equipment and methods.
