Title: Brazil - Rural Micro Enterprise Promotion Programme (FO4LA) - November 2023
Description: Reginaldo da Silva, 52 years old, is part of a farming production chain at the small farm Asa Branca in Mossoro, Rio Grande do Norte state, northeastern Brazil. Their lives have improved since they started participating in the Farmers' Organisations for Latin America (FO4LA) project, implemented by IFAD.

He is part of the family farming production chain at the small farm Asa Branca in Mossoro, Rio Grande do Norte state, northeastern Brazil. With organic food production, his community in Mossoró gained a healthy option in food security. In addition to producing organic food for selling to supermarkets and open-air markets, it generates income for rural families.

Though the Farmers Organizations for Latin America project (FO4LA), which helped farmers organizations to improve, IFAD and the Cooperxique Cooperative have provided key support for Manuel and other farmers in Brazil to obtain an organic certification - extended by his own community members - to become an organic food producer.

"We can maintain an organic certification, so that we maintain a top quality in our products", Reginaldo said.

FO4LA is a project implemented for the first time in Latin Americain to increase income and to improve livelihood, food and nutrition security and safety of family farmers, who are affiliated to targeted Farmers Organizationss within the region. With financial support of the European Union (EU) IFAD acts as technical and administrative managing entity.

FO4LA has covered Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia and Peru, together with 15 agricultural organizations participating in value chains such as coffee, quinoa, cocoa and sugar cane, among others.
