Smallholder producers living in San Martin’s rainforest face high levels of poverty and social exclusion, a fragile ecosystem and severe land degradation and deforestation. The Centro de Promoción de la Equidad “María Elena Moyano” (Centro Moyano) helps small-scale producers from six organizations increase family incomes, diversify and add value to their products and protect the environment by cultivating agroforestry systems focused on native rubber species and associated crops. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Peru. Centro Moyano’s activities bolster efforts to counteract environmental degradation and protect the natural resources that communities depend on.
