Nearly 8,500 farmers will benefit from this money invested by the Development Banking System in this area of the country. Livestock producers will also benefit.
The nature of social solidarity economy shows that it is possible to create and distribute wealth, generating equitable development and sustainability, which is possible under a set of economic and business activities,”
said the President Luis Guillermo Solís, who made a symbolic delivery of funds to producers.
