Job Description

NCBA CLUSA’s USAID-funded Farmer-to-Farmer program sends American farmers and agribusiness professionals on 2-4 week agricultural development assignments, promoting sustainable growth and agricultural development worldwide.

Volunteer technical assistance from U.S. farmers, agribusinesses, cooperatives and universities helps smallholder farmers in developing countries improve productivity, access new markets and conserve environmental and natural resources.

During COVID-19 we have shifted to a hybrid volunteer model that affords US volunteers and in-country volunteers the opportunity to continue to provide technical assistance.

Compensation in the form of lodging, transportation, per diem, is provided by NCBA CLUSA. No salary / consultant fees are paid.

Comité de Participantes de Prima de Comercio Justo Viche is a conglomerate of smaller committees established in 2020 as farmers were seeking a reliable client to whom they could sell their cacao.

They produce organic cacao and a wide range of short and midterm crops (rice, corn, banana, plantain) as well as other permanent species, such as fruits (orange, lemon, mango).
