Summary

Enable one family in a new Agros village in El Salvador to increase its income through various economic and agricultural projects and, in turn, to buy the land that they are working.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Land is a precious commodity throughout the world. Disenfranchised rural families lack access to the kind of credit needed to buy their own land. Trapped in a cycle of basic survival, they pay exorbitant rents for poor quality land or work for desperately low wages as migrant laborers. Agros restores hope and opportunity for such families by purchasing farmland, providing agricultural training, and much more. Families pay back the cost of the land, proudly earning right to its title.

How will this project solve this problem?

Your help enables future Agros families to: raise and sell crops and animals; learn skills to increase incomes; gain access to potable water; build and grow their own businesses; and experience God’s blessing in their lives and relationships.

Potential Long Term Impact

The Agros model works to ensure economic, environmental, organizational, and social sustainability. Sustainability is not only key for the villagers themselves but for the long-term and integrated approach that addresses these issues.
