Poor women and men have the right to a secure livelihood. Markets are the most powerful force for significant, widespread and lasting impact on rural prosperity. The rural poor are customers, producers, and entrepreneurs. We listen to and learn from the people we work with. We value innovation and entrepreneurship. We are results-oriented, aiming for significant impacts for large numbers of people. We strive for economic, social, and environmental equity and sustainability.
IDE creates income and livelihood opportunities for poor, rural households.
iDE is a global development organization that co-creates with foundations, governments, individuals, for-profits, and nonprofits to develop lasting solutions to poverty. We design and deliver market-based solutions in Agriculture and WASH in 11 countries across Asia, Africa, and Central America. Much more than a collection of technologies and field offices, we are a globally integrated ecosystem of nearly 1,000 staff, passionate about innovation and entrepreneurism.
The bottom line is improving the lives of our clients: the rural farmers and small businesses that are among the world’s poorest. The impact we report is rooted in reality and the data is readily available to anyone. This is our method of ensuring that the investments—in money and in time—made by our donors, the rural entrepreneurs we are working with, the customers they are serving, and our staff are having real impact.
