Nicaragua

Although Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, its geography and natural resources are favorable for accessing both regional and international markets. The country’s growing economy is based largely in agriculture and tourism, with the financial industry starting to take root.

Since 1976, TechnoServe has been helping smallholder farmers and entrepreneurs in Nicaragua access formal markets, improve product quality, manage businesses, boost profits and become competitive. TechnoServe also works with entrepreneurs across various industries, providing business training, advice and support through several entrepreneurship development programs.
