Project Description

Small-scale coffee farmers in Huehuetenango and Quiche rely solely on sales of coffee to earn a living. Asociación Barillense de Agricultores (ASOBAGRI) works with Guatemalan farmers to diversify crops and sources of income and to provide technical assistance to generate value added and improve the production process. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Guatemala. ASOBAGRI’s activities strengthen grassroots organizations through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.

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