ToR Consultancy: Development of business plan for coconut sugar cooperative, in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia

The Enhancing Livelihoods Fund (ELF) was established in January 2015 with support from Ford Foundation and Unilever.  ELF provides finance for suppliers in Unilever’s supply chains to improve their social impact in sourcing from smallholders, empowering women in the supply chain and improving conditions for workers. These projects have a two-year life-span with the intention for scalability and/or replication after the end of the funding period.

In 2017, Puter Foundation was provided with an ELF grant to design & implement a new sourcing model in the coconut sugar supply chain in Sampit area, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia, combining business & environmental protection agendas by:

  • Building a supply chain with no intermediaries between farmers and suppliers to increase farmer’s income & status in the value chain.
  • Developing training to transfer knowledge and good practices from existing farmers to new coconut sugar farmers;
  • Strengthening women capabilities and participation in the supply chain.

It is expected that within 4 years 560 farmers will be producing 2,500 mt/year of coconut sugar, and will have learnt skills that will increase their chances to be linked to export markets. In the first year of the project a coconut sugar farmers’ cooperative has been established with the aim of providing production and quality advisory services to farmers and improving linkages to markets. New coconut-sugar producers have been sensitized on the aims of the cooperative.

This purpose of this consultancy is outlined in the attached ToR; and will consit of 3 phases:

  • Research and design
