Title: Brazil - Rural Microenterprise Promotion Programme (FO4LA) - November 2023
Description: Maria de Fatima da Silva, 43 years old, works in the manufacture process of cashews pulp at the settlement Mulunguzinho, municipality of Mossoro, Rio Grande do Norte state, northeastern Brazil.

This processing unit belongs to a group of women supported by the Cooperxique Cooperative and IFAD through the Farmers Organizations for Latin America project, with the European Union financing.

The project has provided support to agricultural organizations, associations, cooperatives, and credit organizations to improve their management, institutional, technical, and governance capacities.

Helping them eliminate these limitations has allowed family farmers and their organizations to better interact with other actors in the agricultural sector, as well as participate in markets and generate employment and entrepreneurship opportunities for the young rural population and rural women. It has allowed them to participate in dialogue and negotiation processes on public policies that affect them, thus contributing to the construction of more equitable and sustainable food systems.

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.

The project has been especially relevant when the problems historically suffered by small farmer organizations in the region (insecure land tenure, lack of mechanization, ecosystem degradation, price volatility, limited access to quality inputs and support services weak) have been aggravated by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in Latin America and the Caribbean.
