P4P in Nicaragua
In Nicaragua, P4P focuses on strengthening the capacity of farmers’ organizations (FOs) to sell quality commodities to markets beyond WFP. Through a multitude of partnerships with key actors in the region, P4P is providing smallholder farmers with the necessary training and equipment to increase their yields, improve crop quality and strengthen their capacity for collective marketing. P4P is also promoting credit access through the use of revolving funds and by establishing relationships between FOs and credit institutions. To ensure sustainability, P4P connects FOs with other institutional and private buyers that can provide an assured source of demand as an alternative to WFP.
