Women in Izalco and San Francisco Menendez face barriers to participation in civil society and to income-generating opportunities. Asociación Agropecuaria de Mujeres Produciendo en la Tierra R.L. (AMSATI) works with women to increase their leadership, networking and business development skills and to launch social enterprises in animal husbandry and agriculture. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in El Salvador. AMSATI’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.
