Our Efforts In Ecuador
Building on more than 30 years of experience, our work with small businesses, agricultural co-operatives and government entities has contributed to an environment enabling inclusive economic growth. Through the Accelerating Women’s Empowerment program, we’re building the capacity of partners in high-value industries like tourism and agriculture, focusing on economic opportunities that contribute to gender equality and climate change action.
Diego Rivadeneira, Country Representative
We partner with government institutions, organizations, women farmers, and micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) to improve agricultural production, profitability and sustainability. We focus on women’s empowerment in the dairy value chain.
