Karina’s role in this project is assisting in the training of the use of mezquite pods for flour and production of edible products. She will support the activities of harvesting and engagement with communities for the processing of mezquite pods to produce flour and edible products from it and scope the opportunity to generate businesses that communities can develop and empower them. She will contribute with my expertise in the generation of draft for novel research proposals where business development and market research is involved.
