Bankable integrated farming for sustainable livelihood and sustainable agriculture

A Concept Paper

This concept paper/grant proposal describes the YAPENSA project, an initiative that strives to combine economic and environmental missions for smallholder farmers by diversifying farmers’ business/incomes and reducing their farming and daily life expenditures. Their agribusiness is further diversified by managing their existing farm and their farming wastes to create new business opportunities for farmers.

In Indonesia, smallholder farming, particularly the commonly practiced monoculture farming, is considered not bankable due to its scale, risks and costs.

The economic missions are implemented by diversifying farmers’ business/incomes and reducing their farming and daily life expenditures. Their agribusiness is diversified by managing their existing farm and their farming wastes to create new business opportunities.
