PRODIVCOM has seen the economic and social living conditions of 24000 women and men (4990 family businesses, 8000 producers) in 3 extractive regions of Peru improve, developing a range of beneficiary, diversified and competitive economic activities. The objective behind this idea of local economic diversification is to support the integration of the target populations into the country's economy. The development approach can be summarized in the strengthening of sectors adapted to the context through 1) the sustainable improvement of the competitiveness of family agroforestry and associative enterprises, 2) increased access to different markets (local, regional and international), and 3) the establishment and consolidation of associative enterprises (the 3 intermediate results below).
