Participative Development and Rural Modernization Project
The project area includes five of the poorest districts in the Province of Veraguas: Cañazas, Las Palmas, Santa Fe, San Francisco and Soná.
The project will work to empower poor rural people and their organizations by helping them participate actively in rural development. It will assist them in overcoming the challenges of persistent poverty, limited access to financial and non-financial services and markets, and exclusion based on limited citizenship rights. It will also improve rural people's income-generating potential and help small-scale producers market their products profitably.
