Capacity-building for Artisenal Fisherman
by Tecnologica de Alimentos S.A. (Private sector)
TASA, committed to coastal marine ecosystems and as part of Aprendo and Emprendo program, has been in charge since 2010 to establish links of training and business training with artisanal fishermen under a focus on entrepreneurship and formalization. In that sense, it has worked successfully, promoting its own businesses that have given dynamism to the economies of the communities where it operates.

Consorcio Pesquero Atico and Pescart Chimbote are two consolidated projects integrated 100% by artisanal fishermen who now have their own company and commercialize marine products in competitive and formal markets.
