Example from Nestle’s corporate social value (CSV) initiative:
"Nestlé needs high-quality raw materials to produce first-class dairy products. When they entered the market in India in the Moga district in 1962, local farmers were not able to consistently deliver this quality. Only 180 farmers passed the test. Nestlé worked with local farmers to improve their production techniques and long-term contracts to buy products at a fair price.
Today there are 75,000 farmers that reach Nestlé’s quality standards. In the Moga region, they have five times more doctors than other regions of India, better primary schools and basic needs like electricity are fulfilled."

What could an Aragon DAO have done for Nestle’s project?
Farmers could have been invited to join a Nestle-organized DAO.
Reputation tokens could have enabled farmers to increase their reputation by passing tests on production techniques and quality control, meeting milestones on dairy production, and helping other farmers improve their standards and reach target objectives.
Reputation tokens could have been redeemed for monetary rewards earmarked for this program by Nestle.
One reputation token = 1 voting token. Farmers with voting tokens could have decided how to spend donated funds, such as for a joint dairy processing plant or dairy equipment, improving the supply chain, or donating surplus milk to needy families in the Moga district.
DAO Consultants could have been retained by Nestle to provide DAO-related advice or manage DAO implementation.
1Hive incubator could have offered seed funding to farmer-entrepreneurs, with initial seed funds provided by Nestle.
Aragon Association could have acted as fiscal sponsor and provided financial management and disbursement of program funds.
Does this all seem farfetched to ya’ll or within the realm of near-future possibilities?
