Community Service and Social Responsibility

Adventures Technology is committed to the principles of integrity, responsibility and accountability.

Adventures Technology believes in investing in the countries in which it operates. Capital investment into our own infrastructure (procurement or processing), farming and logistic operations is a key contributor to employment.

We also support the communities where we operate by setting up sustainable, livelihood-enhancing projects. Since 2009, Adventures Technology has set up a small-holder micro-finance scheme which allows them to finance to the farmers whom they procure commodity from. Finance is extended in the form of input packs on credit which include the following products: seed, fertilizer, weather insurance and a contract with a guaranteed minimum-price off-take for all produce. At the end of the season, the higher of the market price and minimum guaranteed price is paid by Adventures Technology to farmers for their produce with deductions for input credit.

Such a structured lending program empowers small-holder farmers with credit, enabling them to increase their productivity, without encumbering them with upfront cash requirements to buy inputs. Adventures Technology plans to scale up the program in the region.

Adventures Technology is committed to the economic enhancement of the areas within which it operates. We believe in the premise of the better off the community due to economic activity, the more likely our own markets and procurement opportunities are to be maintained.
