We consider four main standards in shaping and structuring our non-financial reporting:
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
Currently, we consider the following SDGs as the most relevant to Myanma Awba:
|SGD||Rationale||Key figures (FY 21/22)|
Agriculture is the backbone of the Myanmar economy. Fostering sustainable farming is critical to enhancing crop productivity and uplifting the livelihoods of thousands of farming communities across the country.
● 64,000+ farmers trusted our products and services
● Our 500+ experts engage our customers daily and organised 3,000+ meeting with the communities across the country to share their expertise
As a responsible Group of companies, we aim to provide fair, inclusive and respectful working conditions to our staff. We are part of the Business Coalition for Gender Equality .
● 59% of our staff are women
● 54% of our management positions are held by women
● 60% of those promoted were women
As a company, we work to sustain our business: it generates jobs directly for our staff and indirectly for the people working with our suppliers.
● We had 270 staff by the end of March 2022
● We hired 4 employees and promoted 10

SDG 1 AND 2
Learn more about our approach to social performance and impact and get to know us better through our third impact report. We explore socio-economic outcomes and multi-dimensional well-being among our clients and talk about new social indicators and environmental initiatives we introduced over the past year.
A ROAD LESS TRAVELLED
The village of Ping Taung is located in Tatkone township, a mere 60 kilometers from the capital city of Naypyidaw. This village of about 90 households consists of over 50 farming households mainly growing paddy and onion, all of whom we serve being the only microfinance institution operating in the village for the last two years.
Another initiative that we undertook is reducing our carbon footprint which was an exciting and active endeavor in which our team planted over 1200 seeds of Mangrove over 1 acre of land. Once done, it will reduce 2000 tons of carbon within 20 years, equivalent to 100 tons per year. This is comparable to reducing an average car’s total carbon emissions over a span of 5 months. In addition to this, we have contributed to the planting of nearly 3000 Mangrove trees by local communities.
SOCIAL PERFORMANCE AND IMPACT
We are now embarking on our journey of becoming a triple-bottom-line organization. A crucial pillar of this is social performance and client impact. We measured our impact for the first time in the past financial year and regularly track social data through our social dashboard.
