        Empowering Small-Scale Producers to Become Legitimate and Get What They Are Worth

        THE PROBLEM

        Imagine that you are a small-scale miner or farmer that produces high-value commodities like gold, cocoa, cashew, and minerals used in electronics, but you remain poor making less than $5/day. In fact, the work you do is unsafe and unhealthy for you, your family, and surrounding communities. You do honest work, but you are considered illegal because you do not have official identification or an appropriate license. You lack access to basic services like health and education. You are also more likely to live in an unconnected community or where there is inadequate broadband. Even with broadband, other issues - lack of literacy and digital skills, affordability, and technology not being designed for your use case - means you cannot access key benefits, such as information, resources, and services.



        SIZE OF THE PROBLEM

        There are about 500 million small-scale producer households globally with over an average of 3 people in each household, equaling 1.5 billion people. Most of these households are poor and in rural areas. 



        THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRANSFORM THE SITUATION

        Small-scale producers that produce high-value commodities should not be in this position. Artisanal gold miners produce over $25 billion worth of gold a year. Where is all this money going? The majority of the money is not going to the small-scale producers unfortunately. This is only one example.


        Working with Spherio, you can change the life of a producer and his or her family with just a one-time $10 contribution.


        Spherio is an empowerment platform designed as a secure, unified data infrastructure in one device, which includes local broadband coverage using wireless TV White Space, micro data center, self-serve data management and analytics platform, and a variety of other tools and content that are integrated to deliver benefits and outcomes for stakeholders and to catalyze development even in unconnected communities.



        This one device allows us to run programs to: provide producers with official identities and licenses; transact transparent, secure, and equitable trades; manage land and natural resources regeneratively; and improve production. It also can provide content for education, health, and other basic services. All without needing 24/7 broadband from the Internet.


        Spherio's unified offering of features enables transformative actions that result in long-term impact that catalyze regenerative and resilient communities!
