We Effect - Vietnam
Access to markets can spell significant changes for individuals’ income and prospects. People in Huy Tuong, in Vietnam’s Son La Province, are proving this point very clearly. With the help of We Effect and its implementing partner, the Human Ecology and Sustainable Development Institute (HESDI), two agricultural cooperatives have been established and have begun connecting local producers to more lucrative and stable markets in the capital, Hanoi. In addition, training in marketing, accounting and sustainable cultivation techniques has enabled the producers to achieve more sustainability in their livelihoods. Lisa Murray, one of our Vietnam-based photographers, visually documented this series of three success stories about the cooperative members.
