Opening the door to exports for Peruvian smallholders

On a hillside in the Lamas district, in the upper reaches of Peru’s Amazon basin, you will find José Ramos, a smallholder from the Pukashpa community. Like many of the other farming communities around San Martín, a northern region of Peru, the Pukashpa community lack access to electricity, and mainly live from subsistence agriculture, growing yucca, plantains and fruits.
