Thank you for your continued support of Agros communities like Nueva Esperanza in Nicaragua! Great things are happening in this community as families break the cycle of poverty and transform their lives through agricultural development and land ownership.
You may notice that this update is formatted slightly differently than others in the past. Due to the additional information that has been added to our reports, they will only come out twice a year. However, we have created a special edition just for those of you who support Agros communities through Global Giving – so you will still be getting updates four times a year! The special editions will focus on the latest developments in the community as well as include the story of an Agros community member.
We hope you will enjoy the newest update, and welcome any feedback that you may have. Thank you again for joining with our community members as they journey out of poverty. This would not be possible without your support.
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.
