Bulgaria’s Story

The political corruption and high prevalence of crime in Bulgaria has resulted in a greater prevalence of exploitation of those desperate for jobs, particularly in the labor industry.

Not For Sale Bulgaria is beginning to combat this vulnerability through farmhopping, an online endeavor where farmers can sell their products at their own price to consumers interested in supporting local farms. Hopefully, with the addition of farmhopping, there will be more people involved in creating their own businesses, and less of a desperation and vulnerability that results in trafficking.
