Small business initiatives in isolated regions of Argentina often lack know-how to access new markets. Asociación Cultural para el Desarrollo Integral (ACDI) works with a network of producer organizations to create business plans and strengthen their management and technical capacity to attain new markets for their socially responsible and artisanal products. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Argentina. ACDI’s activities encourage small business growth, local entrepreneurship and market development to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
