Smallholder farmers in Brazil are challenged by the need to feed their families and earn an income while conserving natural resources. Associação Movimento Mecenas da Vida (MMV) works with small farmers to organize a participatory organic agricultural certification, establish new markets, and conserve natural resources. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Brazil. MMV’s activities support smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
