Project Description

Brazil’s Maranhão state has some of the highest rates of poverty in the country, and many smallholder farmers there struggle to feed their families and earn a living. Caritas Brasileira Regional do Maranhão (CBMA) works to strengthen a grassroots network that connects rural and urban agricultural producers to create new markets for traditional crops. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Brazil. CBMA’s activities support smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
