Farmer Producer Organizations

HPMI helps in to promote Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs) across the country and link producer groups (both existing ones and newly formed institutions) to marketing opportunities.

Objective

To foster technology penetration, improve productivity, enable improved access to inputs and services and increase farmer incomes, thereby strengthening their sustainable agriculture based livelihoods.

Principles

  • Focus on shared member needs and common objectives- use more participatory approaches to group development need to be applied in which the Farmer Group is the decision maker.
  • A range of different organizational approaches and forms should be used–the type of group approach used will vary and should be appropriate to the group objectives pursued and the particular stage of development of group members, i.e. their level of organizational skills, technical knowledge, education and asset base.
  • Give top priority to promoting sustainability–ensure that groups formed become financially self-reliant enough to sustain their operations without the continued need for outsider support.
  • Give top priority to promoting sustainability–ensure that groups formed become financially self-reliant enough to sustain their operations without the continued need for outsider support:
    • Member savings or capital contribution requirements are in proportion to their level of use of the group enterprise’s services
    • Those incentives to attract member capital are comparatively positive
