Project Description

Indigenous women from rural areas of the municipalities of Intibucá and San Francisco de Opalaca struggle to improve nutrition and generate sufficient household income for their families to prosper. Asociación de Mujeres Intibucanas Renovadas (AMIR) trains its members on farming methods which enrich the environment and improves production, contributing to their organization’s processing and marketing of fruit and jams for sale to an expanding market. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Honduras. AMIR’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.

This grant is part of the IAF’s efforts to address the root causes of irregular migration in Central America.
