This project aims to support 5,400 families in 44 poor rural municipalities of Nicaragua to increase revenue, secure permanent employment and strengthen commercial know-how in partnership with municipal governments and the private sector. CRS and a consortium of principle members, implementing partners, and organizations of the public and private sector will work to address problems related to:
- poor economies of scale
- inadequate productive and post-harvest infrastructure
- inadequate technologies
- lack of access to market intelligence, and
- weak organizational structures of cooperatives.
This will be achieved through the establishment and strengthening of 85 worker-based cooperatives and six second-level cooperative societies, and the development of production and value chains.
