Title: Brazil - Rural Microenterprise Promotion Programme (FO4LA) - November 2023
Description: The Cooperxique Cooperative headquarters is located in Mossoro’, Rio Grande do Norte state, northeast of Brazil. The dream of dozens of organized agroecological producers comes true through this cooperative point of sale. This space allows them to boost local sales of agroecological products that families put all their effort into producing every day.

Cooperxique connects the dots between farmers, consumers and specialists to receive technical assistance for producing and commercializing agroecological. This store is called by its users as a Solidarity Commercialization Space and it exists to ensure that organic products are consumed in different municipalities and not just in the city of Mossoro.

The Cooperxique Cooperative has improved its activities since they started participating in the Farmers' Organizations for Latin America (FO4LA) project, implemented by IFAD with the financial support of the European Union. Thanks to this guidance, now they have an official brand for their agroecological products to access new markets.

FO4LA is a project that has been implemented in Latin America for the first time 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, IFAD acts as technical and administrative managing entity. A key programme partner in this region is the Confederacion de Organizaciones de Productores Familiares del Mercosur (COPROFAM), which managed its own sub-programme within the FO4LA umbrella.

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