Peru Cocoa Alliance recognized by Bloomberg Business

CARANA’s Peru Cocoa Alliance, a USAID-funded cooperative agreement, was recognized by Bloomberg Business for its contribution to alternative development in Peru in November 2015. Bloomberg approached the Alliance several months prior to publishing the article in order to conduct a series of interviews regarding issues of alternative development and the growth of cocoa production in Peru. Bloomberg interviewed representatives of both USAID and a producer partner of the Alliance in Huánuco.

CARANA congratulates all of its partners and colleagues working on the Peru Cocoa Alliance for this global attention, and looks forward to future successes as the Alliance continues to positively impact livelihoods in Peru.
