How YOU gave farmers a helping hand

We want to take the time to say thank you – and we mean it! We are truly grateful for the support you have already shown to our work. It’s because of people like you that we can continue to apply business ideas around the world as a sustainable solution to poverty.

We are so excited to share with you the latest news about how your generous gift to MEDA’s Techno-Links (Technology Links for Improved Access and Incomes) project is making a life-changing difference.

Watch the slideshow below to learn how you have positively impacted the operations of two suppliers in Nicaragua, Burke Agro and Tecnosol, and the lives of nine farmers they work with.

We hope that the photos and insights into our clients’ daily lives will give you great joy as you discover the men and women you and others like you are helping to improve their businesses and better provide for their families.
