Linking Colombia's smallholder farmers to markets

Speeches Shim

Through the Investment for Peace Fund, USAID and their Global Development Alliance with Acumen are doing equity investments in small and medium agribusiness like Acceso Colombia, that benefit smallholder farmer in conflict affected regions. Acceso Colombia buys farmers’ high-quality fruit, vegetables and fish, processes and packages the produce in community-run warehouses and delivers the goods to high-value retailers and supermarkets. By removing intermediaries from the value chain, Acceso increases farmers’ income for their yields.
