Project Description

Smallholder farmers in El Salvador face a number of challenges to grow and process their crops, assure better nutrition for their families, and access markets. Asociación Cooperativa de Comercialización y Producción Agrícola Compañero Erick (ACOPROERICK) trains and provides technical assistance in organic production of basic grains, fruits and vegetables. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in El Salvador. ACOPROERICK’s activities support smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security, improve farmer’s income and 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.
