Recyclers in Jinotega often live in extreme poverty. Tuktan Sirpi works with recyclers to consolidate and expand an operation in Jinotega Department by training a youth recycling network in organization, management, marketing and equipment operation. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Nicaragua. Tuktan Sirpi’s activities support local entrepreneurship and market development to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
