Cosecha Partners has pioneered new markets and value chains for non-traditional crops and specialty foods from Nicaragua. Through our grower outreach programs, we source directly from small-scale farmers, 85% of which grow on less than 5 hectares of land. We also make significant purchases from women and indigenous groups.
 
Cosecha Partners promotes sustainable agricultural practices for its growing partners. We support and finance the implementation of certified organic standards and the conversation of areas where conventional, chemically intensive production is practiced. We also promote agroforestry and actively partner with a large reforestation project in Chinandega.
 
As part of our grower assistance programs, we provide training and agronomic assistance to small-scale farmers from marginalized communties in organic production methods, soil conservation and management, post-harvest handling, and fair trade practices.
 
Cosecha Partners helps small-scale farmers connect with microfinance institutions and rural banks that provide critical finance to our growers, allowing them to improve their productivity and expand their business. The financing also helps alleviate household cash flow constraints and stabilize family incomes.
