Rural family farmers in the Mendoza region of Argentina face limited economic opportunities and often lack business skills. Caxi Asociación para el Desarrollo Integral (Caxi) provides technical assistance to these farmers to improve organic farming and to develop economic initiatives like jam, jelly and tomato paste processing to generate income. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Argentina. CAXI’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
