In the face of growing global challenges such as climate change, food insecurity, and poverty, it is imperative that We provide resources, training, and support to small farmers, helping them to increase their productivity and income. Our focus is on sustainable practices that preserve the environment and promote healthy and nutritious food systems. Through our work, we aim to build resilient communities and contribute to a better future for all.
Small-scale farmers grapple with climate change, food insecurity, and poverty, lacking crucial resources and support. Insufficient sustainable practices amplify environmental threats, jeopardizing communities and hindering resilience. Urgent intervention is essential to break this cycle, fostering sustainable agriculture for a prosperous and resilient future.

We acknowledge the struggles of small farmers with climate change, food insecurity, and poverty. Our commitment lies in providing equitable access to resources and support, ensuring all farmers benefit, regardless of background. We champion sustainability, promoting practices that enhance productivity while preserving the environment. Recognizing the interconnectedness of small farmers with broader communities, we emphasize building resilience. Our core values include fostering healthy and nutritious food systems, crucial for individual and communal well-being. We are unwaveringly dedicated to a better future, where thriving small farmers and sustainable practices contribute to resilient communities and environmental preservation.
We believe that financial difficulties should not be a barrier to farming and that smallholder farmers are the backbone of our food system. The GroRizq program enables smallholder farmers who face financial difficulties by providing them with quality inputs such as seeds, fertilizer, and pesticides at zero up-front cost, so they are able to grow better and with ease. Once harvest is done, farmers return the value of inputs in monetary terms at a zero interest rate.

Rizq Model Farms are green oases of regenerative agriculture. Our mission is to lead by example, showcasing sustainable farming practices that rejuvenate the land and maximize yields. We partner with local small-scale farmers, sharing knowledge, providing guidance, and offering essential inputs to help them embrace these eco-friendly methods. Together, we’re nurturing a greener, more prosperous future for farming communities.
Since working with small farmers is perceived as a low-profit and high-effort activity, few
industry stakeholders are willing to directly cater to them. This reality is heavily
exacerbated by an additional lack of state initiatives within Pakistan to empower small
farmers within South Punjab and Sindh. Our ongoing work within these regions has
revealed a glaring fragmentation of agricultural service providers, as well as an absence
of certain key services altogether.
