Economic Independence for Women in Honduras



Agros provides rural women in Honduras with the critical resources, training, and tools they need to learn new skills, start new businesses, and diversify income sources through productive and economic enterprise projects. These activities, combined with agricultural and human services support through Agros International's holistic community development model, empower women to become change agents in their communities, increase household income, and make a stronger future for their children.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Honduras is among Latin America's poorest countries. While poverty rates have dropped by approximately 5.2% since 2005, nearly 65% of the total population stillbelow the poverty line, with urban poverty reaching 71.6% and rural poverty reaching 57.8%. Women in marginalized rural areas often lack access to financial resources, tools and training that allow them to safely save, plan, and provide for their families.

How will this project solve this problem?

Agros empowers women to become economically self-sufficient through financial training, access to adult education, training in how to raise new crops and livestock, community banking and productive initiatives that allow them to learn new skills and add needed income to the household budget and afford essentials while also planning for the family's financial future.

Potential Long Term Impact

Country-wide, Honduras is home to four Agros villages, where we partner with more than 90 families, helping them to gain access to education, agricultural training, health care and sanitation, clean water, and other resources critical to lifelong health and success.
