SNV improves economic opportunities and quality of life in Nicaragua through a multi-sectoral approach. We are especially recognized for our work in value chain development, track record in developing inclusive businesses, and renewable energy.
SNV began working in Nicaragua in 1992. The portfolio is strong in agribusiness and value chain development, including coffee, cacao, fruits and vegetables; governance; and most recently renewable energy, with an ambitious national biogas project to begin in 2012.
SNV has a solid reputation with government entities, the donor community, NGOs, and the private sector, and has played a key role in facilitating alliances among these stakeholders. Current staff in Nicaragua includes over 30 professionals and full-time project-based consultants.
