Project Description

Banana producers from the Piura Region have limited access to the export market, making it difficult for them to earn more income. Asociación Promoción de la Gestión Rural Económica y Social (PROGRESO) provides technical assistance to members of two associations to improve their production of organically grown fruit, qualify for Fairtrade certification and increase sales to the export market. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Peru. PROGRESO’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
