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.
