A Kick Start Meeting for the Inclusion of Micro and Small Enterprises in the Sustainable Tourism Value Chain in Miches

The month of August has proven to be quite monumental for the BID/FOMIN project, the 36-month development project which will organically certify 300-500 agricultural producers and will establish 5-10 micro and small businesses (MSEs) to supply goods and services to Tropicalia and other anchor companies, as we officially kick off the project.
