The Multilateral Investment Fund, a member of the IDB Group, is partnering with the Nordic Development Fund and two Dutch non-governmental organizations, Hivos and SNV, to launch a $6.3 million biogas market development program that will bring renewable energy to small farmers in Nicaragua.


The project, which MIF says is the first to be approved under a biogas program targeting small agricultural producers in Latin America and the Caribbean, will bring renewable energy to 6,000 small farmers and rural households in Nicaragua.
