Monday, September 26, 2011

Small producers in rural areas of Honduras will be the main beneficiaries of a new United Nations-backed project that will invest $21 million to combat poverty in the north of the country.

The project, signed this week by the Honduran Government and the UN International Fund for Agricultural Development, aims to facilitate market access for small producers and establish relationships with the private sector to ensure its profitability.

The project will benefit about 24,000 households, with 12,000 of them receiving technical assistance, venture capital and financial services.
