Overview of Project 

MARI (PT. MARI Sejahtera Indonesia) is a community-based organisation that supports seaweed farmers' businesses through sustainable and fair cooperative models. By leveraging decades of regional farming experience and providing support systems such as advanced technology, sustainable tools and efficient operations, MARI seeks to increase household earnings and empower farmers. The company tackles the challenges and risks inhibiting the growth of seaweed farmers, adopting a systems-based approach and placing farmers at the heart of its operation.   


Our financial offering through a cooperative structure will drive membership expansion from South Sulawesi across multiple locations in Indonesia to 1,500 farmers by 2027. This will support improved practice and governance, rebalancing, and transitioning the entire seaweed sector into a formalised industry that works for all. MARI is seeking to scale its first site, already established in South Sulawesi and is looking to add to its growing team in the region.
