Pymerural

Promoting inclusive economic growth

The project Pymerural increased income and employment in rural areas, contributing to the sustainability of SME's in agro industrial value chains. As inclusive value chain development became a public policy priority in both Honduras and Nicaragua, the program has been supporting public and private institutions at national and local level. This in order to achieve greater SME competitiveness through local economic and value chain development.

The main lines of intervention were:

 

like improved ovens, protected agriculture and bio-insecticides and -fertilizer. In Nicaragua the project focussed on the consolidation of the beekeeping value chain and scaling up of best practices in agroindustry.
