In order to improve the social and economic conditions of 3,000 rural Colombian families, SOCODEVI worked to consolidate the competitiveness of their agricultural, forestry and pastoral (agro-forestry & pastoral) activities. To this end, SOCODEVI focused on improving a number of key factors: 1) access to local, regional and international markets, 2) the entrepreneurial environment, 3) access to quality technical assistance, 4) women’s integration into the formal economy and 5) the establishment of sustainable agro-forestry pastoral systems.
