Update: Sustainability for Guatemalan Farmers

Thank you so much for your ongoing commitiment to Agros communities like Villa Linda in Guatemala! The community is making great progress, thanks to your support, in projects like beekeeping and growing coffee.

We are excited to share with you the Fall 2011 update for Villa Linda. You can also access this update on our website at http://www.agros.org/ag/villagepdfs/VillaLinda.pdf. You may notice that the report is in a new format, which integrates some helpful feedback we've received from our supporters like you. One of the changes we’ve made is providing an overall country update from Director Mario Morales so you can get a sense of the progress not only in Villa Linda but throughout Guatemala. 

You can also learn about one couple in the community, Faustino and Marcela, who have overcome great odds and are now thriving.  Marcela is an active leader in her community bank, using loans from it to run a small grocery store.  Faustino is growing coffee and caradmom, crops that typically prove an excellent investment, so that he and Marcela can provide more opportunity for their family. 

We hope you like this new update, including Faustino and Marcela's story, and would welcome any feedback you may have. Thanks again for your partnership in helping families to escape the cycle of generational poverty in Guatemala.

Update: Sustainability for Nicaraguan Farmers

Thank you so much for your ongoing commitment to Agros communities like Futuro del Mañana in Nicaragua! As we mentioned in the last update, we'll now be featuring a different community in this update since Futuro del Mañana is now completely self-sustainable.

We'd like to introduce you to the community of Nueva Esperanza, and share with you the Autumn 2011 update. You can also access this update on our website at http://www.agros.org/ag/villagepdfs/NuevaEsperanza.pdf. You may notice that the report is in a new format, which integrates some helpful feedback we've received from our supporters like you. One of the changes we’ve made is providing an overall country update from Director Ricardo Espinoza so you can get a sense of the progress throughout Nicaragua. 

We hope you like this new update, and would welcome any feedback you may have. Thanks again for your partnership in helping families to escape the cycle of generational poverty in Nicaragua.

Update: Sustainability for Nicaraguan Farmers

We are so grateful for your continued support of our communities in Nicaragura!  You can also access this update on the Agros International website at http://www.agros.org/ag/villagepdfs/FuturodelManana.pdf.

We are sharing with you the Summer 2011 update for Futuro del Mañana, which is exceptional because it will actually be the final report from this community. Thanks to the support of generous people like you, and years of hard work on the part of our families, Futuro del Mañana has reached the point of self-sustainbility and will no longer receive direct support from Agros. Community members even held a land title ceremony to celebrate that most have paid off their land loans and now own the land outright!  Though we'll still be keeping in contact with Futuro del Mañana, your funds will go to support other communites in need in Nicaragua.  You'll begin receiving information about some of these other communities in future updates, and can begin to chart their progress.

As always, we’d welcome any feedback you may have about these reports.  On behalf of the families of Futuro del Mañana, thanks again for your partnership in helping them to escape the cycle of generational poverty in Nicaragua.
