Communities of cacao and coffee producers in Rancho Grande, Matagalpa, are limited in how much income they can earn using traditional agricultural practices and local markets. Cooperativa de Servicios Múltiples Ríos de Agua Viva 21 de Junio R.L. (RAV) helps farmers increase crop yields using sustainable and ecologically sound practices, improve processing and product quality and expand their access to domestic and export markets. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Nicaragua. RAV’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
