Project Description

Women in rural communities of Waslala have low household incomes due to their limited access to local, national and international markets in which to sell their products. Asociación de Madres y Familiares Víctimas de Guerra-Waslala (Asociación de Madres) provides technical and financial assistance for residents to develop skills in cacao collection and small business development and works to improve pricing, incomes and gender equality in the region. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Nicaragua. Asociación de Madres’ activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
