Rural communities in Intibucá, Honduras lack access to markets and loans which hinders their ability to develop economic initiatives. Central de Cajas Rurales de Intibucá (CECRI) provides loans to its members and training to collectively market and sell their agricultural produce and reduce the likelihood of migration. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Honduras. UCROH’s activities encourage small business growth, local entrepreneurship and market development to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
This grant is part of our broader initiative to support economic prosperity, democracy and governance consistent with the U.S Strategy for Engagement in Central America.
