Farming families of Kukra Hill and Bluefields face environmental challenges without sustainable agricultural alternatives. Fundacion Nicaraguense Cosecha Sostenible (FUNCOS) works to increase and diversify agricultural production in an environmentally responsible way, helps farmers process and market their products and promotes the sustainable use of natural resources. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Nicaragua. FUNCOS’ activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
