Indigenous women in Latin America face significant gaps in access to higher education, health services and employment opportunity. Fundación RENACE – Red Nacional de Acción Ecológica (RENACE) works with women-led community enterprises in the Alto Beni region to improve production and marketing of local products and services in order to generate employment, increase incomes and strengthen community resilience. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Bolivia. RENACE’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
