Why we invest

Proximity designs and delivers affordable, income-lifting products and service – irrigation equipment, crop loans, and farm advisory services – to the rural poor in Myanmar. They “treat the poor as customers”: They design and develop in-country alongside those they serve and pay close attention to what people want. The result is a range of products and services that, on average, double customers’ income and are accessible to 80% of Myanmar’s rural population across 10,000+ villages.
