What We Do

We believe business solutions are effective
interventions to address poverty.

We use financial and technical expertise to build and enhance sustainable agri-food systems that provide decent work for traditionally excluded communities, including women, youth, and people living in poverty . Our economic development approach empowers hardworking entrepreneurs and farmers to build profitable businesses and livelihoods.

MEDA’s work is fully aligned with our faith-based values and our commitment to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our work is often focused in the Global South – working to provide 500,000 decent jobs for people experiencing poverty by the year 2030.
