Focus on agriculture 
One in four of the world’s poorest people live in rural areas. Many of them – from farmers to seasonal workers – one way or another rely on agricultural activities to meet their daily needs. In this edition we look at the different aspects and challenges of agriculture as a poverty alleviation tool.

In practice

 
Environmental education in Bolivia
Over 100,000 Bolivian women received training on health and environmental issues under a joint programme of Bolivian microfinance institution CRECER and Oikocredit.
 
Growing economies with agriculture
Oikocredit’s agricultural strategy, launched in 2010, aims to expand its agricultural portfolio of projects outside microfinance to 30% over the next five years.
 
Bulgaria’s model
Unlike the traditional agricultural cooperative model, in Bulgaria cooperatives rent land from small landowners, cultivate it, collect the yield and sell the produce. They then pay members rent and dividends.
 
Combating the grab for land
Following increasing reports of land grabbing in many developing countries, Oikocredit is providing funds for cooperatives to buy their own land.
