2018 – Centro Moyano

By |2021-01-19T15:16:13-05:0018 September 2018|

Project Description

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.

Project Amendments

This amendment provides Centro Moyano with an additional six months and $60,500 to address issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including increasing working capital and purchasing equipment and materials to help association members expand the range of value-added products they produce and extend the shelf life of their fruits and vegetables. As a part of the amendment, Centro Moyano is mobilizing an additional $15,106 in counterpart resources to the grant agreement.
