PEOPLE HAVE IMPROVED THEIR LIVING CONDITIONS
SOCODEVI completed its project to diversify associative enterprises and enhance their competitiveness in the extractive regions of Peru (PRODIVCOM). The project has racked up success after success on a technical and entrepreneurial level and in terms of the governance of supported enterprises. Many agricultural value chains have been consolidated (e.g. asparagus, avocado, coffee, mushrooms, legumes, quinoa, pomegranate, pineapple, passion fruit, etc.), as well as livestock sectors (guinea pig, milk, and milk derivatives). Significant yield increases have translated into commensurate increases in income, helping to improve the lives of several thousand families between 2013 and 2021.

Today, participating women report having higher self-esteem, making more decisions about resources and other family matters, and playing an active role in their organizations and communities.
The environment has also always been part of the equation. A total of 100 modern, environmentally friendly irrigation systems are running and nearly 1,700 hectares have been reforested. In addition, 18 associative enterprises have adopted good environmental practices at the organizational level.
The project was realized with the contribution of various private companies.
“ I will always try to bring back all the good ideas I learned in the workshops we received and pass them on to the new members
who join the co-op.”
