Improving Livestock Livelihoods

In order to improve the income of 4,000 rural smallholder producers through increased production and marketing, TechnoServe is implementing Ganadería Empresarial (GANE), a Nicaraguan livestock initiative. GANE will address the livestock industry’s key barriers and constraints by improving the capacity of smallholder producers to increase quality production and the industry’s overall ability to meet stricter international food safety standards, positioning Nicaragua’s livestock industry to compete on a global scale. This long-term project will impact families in the departments of Jinotega, Madriz, Matagalpa, Nueva Segovia, Chinandega, Region Autónoma del Atlántico Norte and Región Autónoma del Atlántico Sur.
