Summary

With your support, communities in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Nicaragua will be able to increase their incomes through various economic and agricultural projects.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The majority of the members of these communities live below the poverty line, earning less than US$1-2 a day. 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 for such families by purchasing farmland, providing agricultural training, and much more. Families pay back the cost of the land, earning right to its title, & making loans available to new families.

How will this project solve this problem?

Agros offers families the opportunity to earn land over time. Last year, many of the villages started the cultivation of crops, small animal husbandry projects, a community bank for small businesses, and received training in natural medicine.

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.
