Project Description

In Río Limpio, in the Elías Piña region of the Dominican Republic, coffee rust decimated farmers’ fields. Cooperativa de Productores Orgánicos Valle de Río Limpio (COOPROVALLE) helps its members improve certified organic coffee production by renovating fields with rust resistant plants and by utilizing agroforestry techniques in order to generate income, improve livelihoods and protect the environment. At the IAF we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in the Dominican Republic. COOPROVALLE’s activities increase small business growth, local entrepreneurship and market development to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
