Project Description

The dwindling supply of local fish in the Jiquilisco Bay creates challenges for Puerto Parada fishing families, who depend on this natural resource for their way of life. Asociación Cincahuite para el Desarrollo Integral de las Comunidades del Sector Puerto Parada-Bahía de Jiquilisco (CINCAHUITE) helps implement a natural resource management plan that prioritizes fish repopulation, fishing cooperatives and a certificate training program on resilience to environmental degradation. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in El Salvador. CINCAHUITE’s activities encourage small business growth, local entrepreneurship and market development to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.

This grant is part of the IAF’s efforts to address the root causes of irregular migration in Central America.
