Dissanayake and his family grow rice and spices on an 1.25 acre plot of land in Alutgama, Yatawatte, Sri Lanka.
His biggest challenge? "The adverse weather. We do not have irrigation channels and have to depend on the rain and ground water. During the dry season, the ground water resources tend to dry-up and then we have to abandon our farming".
Through the work of Ethical Inspirations, Dissanayake was able to sell his spices at a fair price.
