Our vision is a world where smallholder farmers are empowered with long-term opportunities and market access that enable them to live healthy, dignified, and prosperous lives. A world where local food systems are equitable and work in favor of small producers, not against them. A world where all workers in food systems are paid fairly. Acceso was originally founded by President Clinton and philanthropist Frank Giustra as an initiative of the Clinton Foundation. Acceso’s mission is to create fundamental and lasting economic change in the lives of rural smallholder farming families. Our pioneering entrepreneurial model provides smallholder farmers with a sustainable way to participate in formalized markets, enabling them to work themselves out of poverty with dignity and to prosper.
