Title: Brazil - Rural Micro Enterprise Promotion Programme (FO4LA) - November 2023
Description: Tiago poses for a photo while inspect crops of lettuce. Tiago Jose Souza is a producer who has been growing vegetables for 25 years at the small farm Asa Branca in Mossoro, Rio Grande do Norte state, northeastern Brazil. A few years later he discovered the Cooperxique and joined it. The partnership with IFAD was born from this meeting. IFAD provided the necessary support for him to obtain an organic certification - extended by his own community members - to become an organic food producer, and he guarantee that this only happened through the Cooperxique Cooperative and the FO4LA project.

"IFAD supports us through the Xique Xique network and this is very important because it's our survival.
So we can produce a certified product and bring a good and certified product to the market."

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 Organizations within the region. With financial support of the European Union (EU) IFAD acts as technical and administrative managing entity.

FO4LA is being carried out in Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia and Peru, together with 15 agricultural organizations participating in chains such as coffee, quinoa, cocoa and sugar cane, among others.
