Breaking Rural Liberia's Poverty Trap Through Innovation

Farmers in rural Liberia have limited access to facilities to process their crops or markets to trade them. Pothole-ridden roads pose particular challenges, especially when the rainy season makes them nearly or wholly impassable. Lack of electricity hinders mechanized processing of produce. A Liberian NGO, which partners with an American grantmaker on projects to provide off-grid energy and innovations for processing and marketing produce, aims to break the cycle of extreme poverty for rural communities.

The future of Liberia's children is being built by today's visionary entrepreneurs and the policymakers who provide an enabling environment for their work.
