Inclusion of Family Farming in Value Chains Project

Inclusion of Family Farming in Value Chains Project (PPI)

This five-year project, which entered into force in February 2013, aims to increase the incomes and quality of life of small family farmers and poor rural people in Paraguay by means of their sustainable inclusion in value chains. The project maintains a focus on gender and environmental concerns, and works through representative social organizations. Its specific objectives include:

  • Increasing employment opportunities for the poor rural population, particularly women and young people
  • Strengthening rural organizations
  • Improving family farmers' access to credit for investment and working capital
  • Linking project participants and value chains
  • Promoting diversification, improved technology, increased production and improved food security at the farm level.

The project area encompasses the eastern region of Paraguay, where virtually all family farms are concentrated. This region includes and extends the area covered by the IFAD-funded Empowerment of Rural Poor Organizations and Harmonization of Investments Project. The target population includes small farms already linked more or less formally with markets, as well as vulnerable groups such as landless farmers, women heads of household, young people and indigenous communities.
