Question 5-7 are based on the following passage.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and MasterCard are joining forces to create an innovative new alliance against hunger. A new partnership agreement, signed today by FAO Director-General Jose Graziano da Silva and 'Walt Macnee, Vice Chairman of MasterCard, at FAO headquarters, paves the way for a collaborative effort that will develop inclusive payment systems to support
small-scale farmers and poor families. Among other activities, the collaboration will explore ways to provide credit or money to households for purchases of basic needs and farming inputs on local markets, thereby supporting local economies and puting financial tools in the hands of economically marginalized communities. The effort will benefit from the complementary strengths of each organization: MasterCard's expertise in payments technology and FAO's global reach and track record in combating hunger and malnutrition.
The partners first joint effort will be in the Kakuma refugee camp, in Turkana County, Kenya, currently home to 170,000 refugees who have fled wars and violence in neighboring countries. Camp residents will be provided with prepaid cards that will permit them to buy charcoal produced by locally the most community-charcoal that has been certified as being produced in a sustainabie, environmentally- friendly way. The scheme is designed to improve incomes of Turkana residents, reduce social tensions between those residents and the refugees, and relieve pressure on the environment.
MasterCard will provide its technology expertise and a meaningful Financial contribution, to kick-start the business chain by providing 1,240 host-community households with improved charcoal making kilns and 7,000 refugee households with energy efficient stoves and credit to purchase 25 percent of their annual charcoal needs. This partnership truly shows that the private sector is a key ally in global effort to build a world with zero hunger FAO is extremely proud of this collaboration with MasterCard that will support small-scale farmers to become economically independent by advancing financial inclusion, said FAO Director-General Jose Graziano da Silva.
MasterCard's Walt Macnee said: "By signing this important agreement with FAO, MasterCard further builds on our commitment to establish meaningful partnerships that will enable us to leverage global technology and insights to drive a more empowered, inclusive planet where people -regardless of where they live or their current economic status are able to better build more selfdetermined lives. Together with FAO we look forward to delivering against this vision.
