Project Description

With a lack of resources and economic development opportunities, Morazán farmers and entrepreneurs struggle to generate sufficient income to support their livelihoods. Asociación Comunal Comité de Desarrollo Turístico de Meanguera (CDT-Meanguera) works with residents to promote sustainable tourism and provides technical assistance to develop skills in producing crafts, diversifying agricultural products and accessing new markets. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in El Salvador. CDT-Meanguera’s activities encourage small business growth, local entrepreneurship and market development to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.

This grant is part of our broader initiative to support economic prosperity, democracy and governance consistent with the U.S Strategy for Engagement in Central America.
