The main objective of SPWF is to advance and promote the economic and social welfare of small planters and their families. For the benefit of a larger customer base, the SPWF intends, in the near future, to extend its services to small breeders and those farmers who process and add value to their products. As a result, the vision, mission and customer charter of the organisation would be redefined. With the government policy to provide additional land for farming purposes and to promote entrepreneurship, the Fund is expecting a high demand for qualitative service from its stakeholders, both in Mauritius and Rodrigues. In face of such changing conditions, and to better organise its activities, the Fund has made representations for the creation of grade of Programme Coordinator; restyling of existing ones; revision of schemes of service; and alignment of salaries.
- Registration of planters to enable them to benefit from the 'Fund' ; - to be responsible for the economic and social welfare of about 40,000 small planters & their families in Mauritius & Rodrigues, who grow sugarcane, tea, tobacco and food crops, including fruit and ornamentals, on their own land or on leased land, to an extent not exceeding 10 hectares.
The staffing complement of the Fund comprises a Manager at the head of the Fund, an Accounts Officer, an Internal Controller, three Technical Officers, three Clerk/Word Processing Operators and a Driver/Office Attendant. There are other posts on the establishment of the Fund which are yet to be filled, viz., Programmer/Analyst, Welfare Schemes Coordinator, Marketing Officer, Accounts Clerk, Purchasing and Supply Officer, Executive Officer and Confidential Secretary.
