Proximity Designs offers technology, agronomy services and financing to smallholder farmers in Myanmar, boosting the incomes of rural families. In a country where 70% of the population depends on agriculture, improvements in farming technology and techniques—and the capital to access them—are vital to improving living conditions.
Proximity's designers use Autodesk’s Design and Manufacturing Collection and human-centered design principles to create climate-smart, easy-to-use irrigation systems that reduce labor time and increase yields. Its network of over 200 field staff delivers critical farming technology, on-call crop protection services, soil health diagnostics and environmentally friendly biofungicides. Proximity also offers low-interest loans to farmers, helping them sustainably finance their own futures.
