Latest Update from Agros' Nuevo Amanecer

Friends of Agros,

Thank you for your continued support of Agros villages like Nuevo Amanecer!

This quarter the families in Nuevo Amanecer planted fifteen acres of plantains, their main income-generating crop. Each family manages a 0.8 acre parcel of plantains in different stages of development using credit through Agros to increase production. About five acres were harvested and are being sold in the local market, including 40,000 pounds of high-quality plantains. Everyone has been able to repay the project’s loans from the harvest’s profits.

Read more about the community’s development in the attached Spring update for the Agros village of Nuevo Amanecer. If you prefer instead, you can read the report directly from the village page on our site at: http://www.agros.org/ag/villagepdfs/nuevoamanecer.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.

Please submit any feedback you might have and let us know if you find these reports valuable, or what other kinds of information you might like to receive from us as relates to this project.

Enjoy, and mil gracias!
