The Terra Bella Colombia Fund invests in projects that generate income from the smallholder’s production of sustainably produced agricultural products, non-timber forest products and verified emission reductions. The Fund creates exponential income growth through investing in smallholder groups that grow crops in and around forest areas, increasing yields and allowing them to capture more of the value chain.
What is unique in Terra Bella's return generation is that they combine the income generation from sustainable crops with forest management and forest governance to reduce deforestation and degradation. This generates tradable carbon credits that can be sold on Colombia’s new carbon market for a second income stream.
