Counterpart International’s USDA-funded Food for Progress program prioritizes sustainable economic development and resilient livelihoods with our partners in Guatemala. The National Coffee Association (ANACAFÉ) is one such partner that brings together coffee producers and cooperatives to provide training, opportunities to receive internationally recognized certifications, and grants to improve production, processing, business development, and market access. Our project served more than 2,515 coffee farmers in the department of Sololá and strengthened 68 organizations, including farmers groups, associations, and cooperatives.
