Amaranth production with responsible management and marketing of amaranth in differentiated domestic and external markets, in order to improve the income of producers and their families in a sustainable way.

The area of intervention is made up by 8 municipalities of the region called central Chuquisaca. This region has primarily agricultural vocation which is limited due to low productivity with reduced generation of economic income for peasant families. There is also high food insecurity affecting the youth and children, limited participation of women in productive processes, smallholding (small agricultural property), minimum presence of marketing channels, limited promotion and support for productive prioritized complexes, and inappropriate management of natural resources (land, water and vegetation).

It is a challenge to alternatives which can contribute the generation of economic and social opportunities for rural producers in the department of Chuquisaca, with an approach for inclusion and sustainable development.

Currently, Chuquisaca is the largest amaranth producer at national level, and its farming is being revaluated due to the suitable properties of the land and climate in this area.
