Cochabamba, Sacaba

From June 2015 to November 2017, the Project ‘Building Local Capacity for Productive Development in the metropolitan area of Cochabamba, Bolivia’ has been implemented. This Project has been jointly funded by KOICA (Korean Agency for International Cooperation) and the Autonomous Governments of Tiquipaya and Sacaba, municipalities where the project has been developed, in coordination with the Departmental Government of Cochabamba and the National Government through the Ministry of Productive Development and Plural Economy, and executed by UNDP Bolivia.

With the aim of "promoting local, integrated and sustainable human development to reduce poverty in the metropolitan area of Cochabamba", the Project has chosen proposals from a total of 27 producer´s  associations, composed solely of women or of women and men (16 in Tiquipaya and 11 in Sacaba), which defined their productive projects based on their objectives and needs in a participatory way with UNDP technical team, with a comprehensive approach based on five components: productive, commercial, organizational, environmental and gender.

As a result of this process, the "Organic Farmers’ Market from Supplier to Consumer" was held on November 24th in Sacaba, where productive associations participated. These associations offered a wide variety of healthy and chemical-free products and informed visitors about the benefits of consuming organic products.

Furthermore, the representatives of the productive associations expressed their agreement with the organization of this type of events. "For us, the women of Sacaba, it is very important this kind of fairs because we can offer our products to the population and thus increase our income to support our families, this fair will be held on weekly basis offering the population a variety of healthy and chemical-free products," stated Juana Poma, producer of the association of Villa Obrajes.
