Without rice mills
farmers receive $0.17/kg for their unprocessed rice
With rice mills
farmers can be paid $1.23/kg for the rice,
a 623% increase
By milling their own rice, farmers will be able to mill and sell not only the unprocessed rice, but also the husks, broken bits, and bran that are by-products of milling. Greater income for families also means safer and more secure communities, less at risk of being tricked into human trafficking.
