Project Description
The IADB's expected impact of the project is to increase the agricultural incomes of small producers who are members of Cooperativa Campesina Inter-comunal Peumo Ltda. (COOPEUMO). The project’s expected outcome is that small producers will be able to access medium-term financing to acquire inputs and productive assets to boost their productivity. The project will allow COOPEUMO to unfreeze its productive loan program and technical assistance in the field, through the placement of medium-term resources and the strengthening of its lending and other activities, which will boost its productivity and that of its member producers. This Technical Cooperation component specifically will carry out various activities (some by hiring consultants) to: (i) strengthen post-harvest capacities and quality of production for export, through assistance in the field in all stages of growing, as well as during marketing; (ii) improve loan management and expand the cooperative’s team of field technicians, who will also provide support in placing, utilizing, and collecting the loans granted through the project; and (iii) disseminate its activities locally with current and potential members, at the national level with potential buyers, and at the international level with regard to export products.
