Proximity Designs

Mission: To move rural Burmese families out of poverty.

Where they work: Myanmar







In a country where 70% of the population depends on agriculture, improvements in farming technology and techniques – and the credit to access them – are vital to improve earning potential and living conditions. Proximity Designs is a social enterprise that designs and delivers a range of affordable products to meet the needs of the smallholder farmer. These products include irrigation equipment, crop loans, solar lights and farm advisory services, and are based on a deep understanding of how to boost customers’ productivity and incomes. To date, Proximity Designs has enabled over 100,000 rural households to improve their incomes, and it is continuing to scale operations through its revenue-based model.

Our partnership: We have supported Proximity since 2015 with unrestricted grant funding, including match-funding from our sister non-profit Hampshire Foundation.
