Summary

Supporting the Agros villages of Nicaragua will enable families to increase their incomes through various economic and agricultural projects. This income affords families the ability to buy the land that they are working and break the cycle of poverty.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Land is a precious commodity throughout the world. Marginalized 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 in Nicaragua 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?

Agros offers families the opportunity to purchase land over time through the fruits of their own labor. This year families in Nicaragua plan to plant green peppers, plantains & watermelon, raise chickens, rabbits & goats, & hold workshops on gender issues & cooperation.

Potential Long Term Impact

The Agros model works to guarantee long term viability through an integrated approach that addresses economic, social, organizational, and environmental sustainability. This ensures that communities continue to thrive long after direct finical support has ended.
