Economic Development Alliance for San Martin in Peru

The Economic Development Alliance for San Martín is a three year, $7 million initiative that aims to accelerate the transition of the San Martín region of Peru into a sustainable, legal and prosperous economy, increasing employment and incomes while promoting good stewardship of natural resources. It promotes good agricultural practices among cocoa and coffee growers in the region. The program is funded by USAID and implemented in partnership with the Government of Peru, the PIMCO Foundation, Peru Opportunity Fund, Weidemann Associates, the World Cocoa Foundation, the West Foundation and TechnoServe. TechnoServe will help develop these industries and link farmers to better-paying markets. The program also includes a business plan competition that will identify high-potential entrepreneurs who can develop successful businesses related to cocoa and coffee.
