Selling RSPO Credits changes a smallholder farmer’s life

Before joining RSPO, Jalal Sayuti, a 50-year-old smallholder farmer, had limited knowledge of palm oil production, and his family survived without a steady income. In 2014, Jalal started selling RSPO Credits, and the impact of these sales, he revealed, has been “incredible”. “We can now sell directly without relying on middlemen,” he said. Among many other benefits, Jalal is also enthusiastic about the prospect of sending his children to college. To discover more about how RSPO Credits helped Jalal, watch the video below.
