El Salvador

Supporting Smallholder Dairy Farmers

TechnoServe, with financing from the Millennium Challenge Corporation, helped a group of dairy farmers and processing plants in northern El Salvador gain access to higher-paying export markets by improving the milking process, modernizing plants, and establishing links with buyers. The program created nearly 1,000 new jobs over two years.
