Update: Agros' Sustainability for El Salvadoran Farmers Project

Friends of Agros,

Thank you so much for your continued support of Agros villages like San Diego de Tenango!

The chicken project started last quarter by six families is doing well. They are currently producing 200 chickens every six weeks to sell. This project has done so well that six other families have joined the project designated to provide food security to the community through consumption and sale of the eggs and chickens.

Read more about the community's development in the attached Autumn update for the Agros village of San Diego de Tenango. If you prefer instead, you can read the report directly from the village page on our site at: http://www.agros.org/ag/villagepdfs/sandiego.pdf This report measures the success and outcomes of a village's development looking at Community Organization, Land Ownership, Housing and Infrastructure, Community Education and Training, and Sustainable Economic Growth.

Villa Linda Autumn '09 Update

Friends of Agros,

Thank you so much for your continued support of Agros villages like Villa Linda! This quarter the community is proud to report a successful coffee harvest.

Twenty families harvested their coffee fields this quarter and they are expecting about 1,500 pounds each, or $1,266 total income per family. Ten of these families participated in an activity to improve the health and production of the coffee plants by applying lime to the base of each plant. And two of these families planted 0.75 acres each of terraced coffee at a higher elevation in order to prevent erosion of the mountainside. The income earned from this coffee will help the families to make a loan payment on their land.
