Revolutionizing
Food Systems

Meet
Saintania
Touzin

Saintania is a mother-of-five
and smallholder farmer from Haiti, who struggles
to make a living like most of the 22 million smallholders across Latin America
and the Caribbean.

Acceso (“access” in Spanish) transforms the entire
food system from seed to market,
making it work for smallholders farmers like Saintania.

Acceso Farmer Capacity

First, Acceso builds Saintania’s capacity including the delivery of technical training, inputs, and financing, so that she is more productive and growing what markets need.

Acceso
Commercialization

Next Acceso buys Saintania’s crops, aggregating them with products from neighboring farmers, and processing them as needed, as part of its
multi-crop to multi-buyer
Commercialization System.

Acceso then finds the best possible market
for Saintania and thousands of other farmers.

Domestic

Acceso’s model builds resilient local food systems, supplying smallholder sourced produce to supermarkets, restaurant chains, and other large domestic buyers.

Global

Acceso builds high value export products enabling smallholder farmers to participate fairly in international markets.

Humanitarian

Acceso combats food insecurity by providing local smallholder sourced food for refugees, disaster relief, and other feeding programs.

105 %

Since working with Acceso, Saintania has turned her one-hectare farm into a viable, thriving business, employing up to 25 employees during peak harvest.


She can now provide food, schooling, and medicine for her five children and husband, while also investing in livestock to grow her business.
