The Positive Planet Foundation is a public interest organization, founded in 2010. The foundation is comprised of: the NGO: Positive Planet, which helps underprivileged populations and gives them the means to fulfil their projects by enabling access to entrepreneurship, markets and financial services; the Positive Planet France organization, which works with budding entrepreneurs in priority areas for development in France through its program Entreprendre en Banlieue ; and Positive Planet Advocacy (il me semble qu c’est à remplacer par :Positive Economy Advocacy), which promotes positive economy through various events and publications. The Positive Planet Foundation aims to raise money for the different programs run by the two NGOs, while also raising awareness about positive economy.
Enabling individuals to set up durable business activities by accessing suitable financial products
Giving beneficiaries the means to manage their business, from its creation to its independent development
Allowing producers to market and sell their products to large companies
Thanks to Positive Planet’s involvement, we have been able to buy new tractors, sprayers and tillers, which will help the members of our cooperative make their farming more efficient.
I started my business in a corner of my bedroom. Nobody thought that my little creations would allow me to support my family and give jobs to 28 women in my community.
Step by step, I built my own business. All farmers should know how to use loans to set up their business and extend their objectives.
I wanted to give my life meaning again through a stimulating and creative project. Today, thanks to these different forms of support, my business is thriving.
