Promoting Rural Income through Support for Markets in Agriculture (PRISMA) supports maize farmers by promoting hybrid seed for dry land farming. The goal is to increase the productivity of maize, thereby increasing the income of maize farmers.

Sumenep is one of many districts in East Java that has been targeted by PRISMA and where the project is working to alleviate poverty.

The Australia-Indonesia Partnership (AIP-Rural) aims to increase the agricultural incomes of smallholder farmers by stimulating greater private and public sector investments that create better access for farmers to inputs and markets. It operates in five provinces of Indonesia and includes four component projects. PRISMA is one of these projects.

Intervention description

This second wave report is part of a study which aims to gain a deeper understanding of how targeted households use additional income generated through the PRISMA intervention.

The households interviewed during 2017 will be tracked during the following years to see how their livelihood situation has changed, and how the changes relate to the intervention.

Evidence methodology

The study uses a mixed method approach including the collection of both qualitative and quantitative data.

  • 175 households were interviewed for quantitative data collection, using a questionnaire
  • nine respondents were interviewed for qualitative data collection through semi-structured interviews
