Project Description

Farmers in the Azua district have limited opportunities to earn income or to access markets for their products. Cooperativa de Servicios Múltiples San Rafael, Inc. (Cooperativa San Rafael) provides technical assistance to Peralta farmers to develop skills in organic practices and to improve the quality of their processed coffee so they can access niche markets. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in the Dominican Republic. Cooperativa San Rafael’s activities encourage small business growth, local entrepreneurship and market development to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.

Project Amendments

Cooperativa San Rafael will work with its members and other coffee farmers in Peralta, Azua to control coffee rust, implement sustainable agricultural practices including a compost production center, and expand their sources of income by diversifying their plots.
