Project description

The goal of the project is to improve food security for 5,000 small-scale coffee (3,000) and cacao (2,000) farmers, by incorporating them into the coffee and cocoa supply chain in Nicaragua (in CN it were 3,000). The project is led by SNV and is following their Inclusive Business approach. The focus will be on the availability, access, and consumption of food, business management, technological innovation, productive diversification and access to local and international markets. Through UTZ certification and a direct commercial relationship established between small producers and Ecom, market access will improve. Through building the business capacities of small producers their income will improve. Technological innovations will support producers in improving their productivity and diversify their production with family orchards and gardens. The latter component will focus principally on improving families' food security and improving eating habits through nutritional education.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is formal partner in this project.
