Woman coffee sector Honduras project Fundación ETEA

At Fundación ETEA, Development Institute of Universidad Loyola, we put research at the service of development. We specialise in the implementation of international cooperation projects and programmes. We also conduct consultancies, studies, technical assistance and evaluations.
