Flower producers in Quiquijana district, Cusco, struggle to find ways to increase their income. Asociación de Productores Agropecuarios Red de Flores Quiquijana (ASPROFLOR) helps an association of flower producers improve its infrastructure, diversify its agricultural techniques and access new markets by pooling its production to sell in volume. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Peru. ASPROFLOR’s activities encourage small business growth, local entrepreneurship and market development to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
