Our partner in Nicarauga, Promotora de Desarrollo Cooperativo de Las Segovias (PRODECOOP), is a central of cooperatives, offering a variety of services to their producer members as well as their base cooperatives, in the region of Las Segovias, Nicaragua. They offer support on the coffee, honey and other productions value chains, with a specific emphasis on the production, transformation and the commercialization.
In the last years, PRODECOOP has been exploring the tourism potential of the region, specifically with a community called Cante Gallo. They are currently developing a community tourism plan with members of the community, a project that was initiated by a previous Cuso International volunteer. PRODECOOP is looking for someone like you, who can give continuity to the strategic plan and strengthen the community's capacities in developing a touristic package.
You will work closely with PRODECOOP staff to develop support in the tourism value chain to their members. Your expertise in promotion and marketing will also be beneficial to other projects that are currently in the works, such as the hotel that PRODECOOP is currently managing and a coffee tour that is offered to tourists coming to the area.
