Guatemalan smallholders support improved nutrition
WFP recently launched a new project in Guatemala linking P4P with the Scaling up Nutrition (SUN) movement. This initiative, called Maíz Chapín contra el hambre (Guatemalan Maize Alliance Against Hunger), aims to improve nutrition and increase farmers’ income by using their surplus to create supplementary foods for at-risk populations.
The ECA San Vincente, a P4P-supported farmers’ organization, has doubled its production and improved the quality of its product. Thanks to the Maíz Chapín contra el hambre project, the organization is now able to compete for tenders in the local food production industry. Copyright: WFP/Francisco Fion
