Bio:

TAJIMAT is a project looking to facilitate access to markets and fair integration into value chains for Awajun indigenous communities. The Awajun is an indigenous community in the Amazonas region of Peru, and is one of the nation's poorest groups due to their traditional economy focused on reciprocity and redistribution with minimal connection to markets. The project's mission is to help the Awajun community to construct and navigate the infrastructure and economic capacities to access markets and participate in the regional economy. The project´s main purpose is to increase the value of cacao and banana production, not only by improving volume, quality and commercial ties, but also through partnering with various government agencies.
