Small-scale producers living in the San Martn region of the Peruvian rainforest face high levels of poverty and social exclusion, a fragile ecosystem, and severe land degradation due to deforestation. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Peru. Our grantee partner, Amaznicos por la Amazona (AMPA), works with associations of cacao producers to increase family incomes and protect natural resources by developing an inclusive and scalable business model for converting discarded cacao pulp and husks into high-demand products. AMPA's activities bolster efforts to counteract deforestation and protect the natural resources that communities depend on.
