Indigenous communities in Argentina’s northernmost Puna region face challenges like food security and lack of jobs. Asociación de Pequeños Productores Aborígenes de la Puna (APPP) provides technical assistance to small producers to improve their production, processing and marketing of llama meat; encourage the consumption of locally sourced food; and raise awareness of the Kolla culture. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Argentina. APPP’s activities encourage small business growth and market development to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
