In the devastating wake of Hurricane Maria in 2017, Puerto Rico lost an estimated 80 percent of its coffee trees, crippling an important sector of its economy. Working with local and international partners across sectors, TechnoServe aims to help rebuild this industry, training thousands of smallholder coffee farmers to significantly increase their yields and help them access better farming supplies, financing, and markets.
The growing global demand for specialty coffee presents an opportunity for farmers in the highlands of South Kivu to earn higher prices for their crop. Funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and led by Tetra Tech, Technoserve is helping support the Feed the Future Democratic Republic of the Congo Strengthening Value Chains Activity.
