Community production unit
 
With the focus on two communities from different regions in the country but with similar characteristics, we target our efforts to maximize the potential of different community business ventures by providing training, infrastructure and commercial and financial advice.
 
Piquirenda Fátima Aboriginal Community (Acambuco, Salta)
 
We promoted the setting up of groups who work to produce jams, and who engage in agriculture, breeding and raising bees, and breeding pigs. In 2016, a total of 2,500 jars of jam were produced and sold in 8 different points of sale; 10 families focused on agricultural developments, increasing the area sowed; 400 kilos of honey were produced, and the number of swine raised also increased.
 
The Nueva España Neighborhood Cooperative (Centenario, Neuquén)
 
This group started their business by producing jam, and has now achieved the legal status of a cooperative. Today, they also produce lunch boxes for the employees working in the companies located in Neuquén’s Industrial Park. PAE provides training, legal and administrative advice and invests in infrastructure to support this project, which reaches a significant number of families in the region.
