Project Description

Women smallholder farmers that produce native fruits in the rural Brazilian Northeast have limited income-generation opportunities because they lack access to more efficient processing techniques. Associação Comunitária do Sítio Lagoa da Coroa (ACSLC-AL) supports women’s participation and provides them with technical assistance to develop new skills in fruit dehydration. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Brazil. ACSLC-AL’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
