Root Capital & AgroMantaro: Growing Rural Prosperity


AgroMantaro is a Peruvian agro-processor of artichokes and jalapeños that sources from small-scale farmers throughout Peru and has located its processing plant in the central Peruvian Andes. By maintaining long-term relationships with customers like General Mills and McCain, AgroMantaro provides a steady income to hundreds of small-scale farmers and job security for more than 600 employees at its processing plant -- 90 percent of whom are women holding their first formal job.
