The objective of Medina's first F2F assignment was to assess Haitian coffee producer cooperatives' competitiveness and train them in key agribusiness practices including strategic and financial planning. He primarily conducted the assignment with F2F host Makouti, an organization boasting more than 1,000 farmers that produce a wide range of agricultural products.
Medina's second F2F assignment took place in Nicaragua, where he conducted a study on national dairy and meat consumption per capita. Toward the end of his two week assignment, Medina delivered presentations on his findings and recommendations to the Nicaraguan Chamber of Beef Industry Exports (CANICARNE), the Nicaraguan Dairy Chamber (CANISLAC), and the National Cattle Rancher's Association (CONAGAN).
