Noble Gold

Noble Gold forms out-grower partnerships with smallholder farmers
2019 SEED Africa Award Finalist Sustainable Agriculture Gutu, Zimbabwe

Noble Gold addresses the problem of poverty in rural communities through an innovative partnership model that breaks the cycle of intergenerational poverty. Noble Gold also assists with planning and monitoring the farms of the out-growers, which boosts productive activities and increases the harvest of the farmers.

Noble Gold encourages farmers to use organic fertilisers and certified seed and trains them on conservational aspects, including how to avoid field-erosion and avoid post-harvest losses.

Eco-Inclusive Impacts

Noble Gold provides local farmers with new opportunities to grow their business and to care for their families. The enterprise offers material inputs as well as advice on ecological issues and encourages the farmers to use renewable energy sources and organic fertilizers.

In addition, Noble Gold improves the livelihood of the local farmers as they receive better prices for their harvest and the enterprise itself secures a stable supply of raw materials for value-added products.

  • Benefitting 65 farmers who receive the necessary input (seeds and planting material) and can, therefore, provide for their families
  • Assisting farmers to acquire solar-powered water pumps to avoid air pollution
  • Increasing the use of organic fertilizers to address water pollution
  • Reducing erosion of farmland by using bananas as main input material which avoids annual ploughing
  • Improving communal farming and its production
  • Increasing the price at which farmers sell their produce
  • Securing a constant supply of raw materials from the farmers
  • Adding value to raw materials to sell at a higher price
