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.
In 2009, the families harvested an average of 1,250 pounds of coffee each, earning a total of $30,340 among the community, or $1,517 per family! This income will enable them to make payments on their land loans. The families will continue to work with agronomists to improve their coffee farms ensuring successful harvests well into the future.
