Guinea-Bissau achieved independence from Portugal in 1973 following nearly twenty years of armed rebellion. Despite a combination of political coups, civil wars, food insecurity, and other obstacles to stability, Guinea-Bissau has great potential to advance its citizen’s livelihoods and develop the national economy. The country has a vast supply of natural resources, including a growing cashew nut sector. SFL is one of few INGOs that is active in the country. Since 2018, our team has worked to support local farmers by developing agricultural farming practices and market linkages in the cashew sector.
