Led by the Chavimochic Construction Consortium, of Odebrecht Engineering and Construction - Infrastructure, the initiative created in 2015 provides technical and commercial advisory services to 50 rural producers in Tanguche, Peru, and articulates access to agricultural credit.

It was implemented in 2013 in the Hanha do Norte community in Angola by the team of Odebrecht Engineering and Construction - Infrastructure. Based on the diagnosis of the needs of the community, the premise of Tuyula Lomunga was the analysis of the potential of the region and the involvement of the population, which, in partnership with the Business, planned its priorities, organized the mobilization, and conquered partnerships. The economic development actions implemented generate resources that are reverted to the community itself in initiatives of education, culture, health, governance, environmental preservation, and access to water, benefiting 1,200 families.
