Project Objectives

The aim of the project is to give employment opportunities for internally displaced persons, to combat poverty and finally give a chance to financial education and inclusion via the Savings- and Credit Cooperatives.


The project works with internally displaced persons who start the joint commercialization of their production such as fruits, vegetables or bred. Partner is the savings- and credit cooperative CFA in the department of Antioquia which gives consultancy and training to the groups and helps them in getting access to the market, for example via the cooperative supermarket CONSUMO (starts in 2017). Next year the project will be extended to other regions in Antioquia and Neiva counting with the support of other Savings- and Credit Cooperatives in Colombia.
