SNV is improving access to renewable energy for rural communities through projects such the Access to Bioenergy in the Peruvian Amazon project funded by the FACT Foundation.
In partnership with the Inter-American Development Bank and private companies, SNV Peru´s Inclusive Business work is improving employment for low-income communities through sustainable relationships with the private sector.
Through projects like its Grapes of Growth programme, SNV helps youth, women and men in Peru learn skills and gain employment in growing sectors.
SNV began working in Peru in 1966. In addition to a current, robust portfolio in value chain development, Inclusive Business, and renewable energy, SNV has built a reputation in consulting services for firms interested in sustainable, local development. In particular, extractive industry companies have turned to SNV to assist them in evaluating the impact of their community development investments; how to more effectively use their social funds; and to create monitoring and evaluation systems.
Additionally, we have conducted ethnographic market research, socioeconomic studies, and sector mapping to help companies better understand market opportunities with the low-income segment.
