Community Investment: Supporting Local Livelihoods - APEOSAE CooperativeAPEOSAE
is an association composed of around 472 producers grouped in eight agriculture organizations in the zones of Zamora Chinchipe and Morona Santiago.
Since 2010, APEOSAE has received support across five dimensions:
- Management and Technical Capacity Building
- Seed Capital, Micro-Loans
- Infrastructural Support
- Market Access
- Environmental Management and Organic Certification
