COSTARICA / Costa Rica

Self-sustainability diminishes the reliance on product importation and reduces environmental impacts of an area. Our goal was to facilitate connections between enterprises in Monteverde and producers in Costa Rica’s Bellbird Biological Corridor. We interviewed a sample of enterprises and producers to understand the supply chain. With this information, an effective financial tool was designed and implemented, the demand and reasons for using local and imported products were determined, and a preliminary list of local suppliers was created.
