Small business owners and smallholder farmers in Nicaragua face increasing difficulty in procuring loans they need to support their businesses and production. Asociacion Aldea Global Jinotega (Aldea Global) helps farmers — especially women — become more efficient and competitive in providing credit, marketing goods and controlling the quality of production. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Nicaragua. Aldea Global’s activities encourage small business growth, local entrepreneurship and market development to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
