Rural communities in Intibucá, Honduras lack access to financial markets, and specifically to loans, which hinders their ability to develop economic initiatives. The Central de Cajas Rurales de Intibucá (CECRI) provides loans to its members and training to collectively market and sell their agricultural produce, thereby reducing economic pressure to migrate. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Honduras. CECRI’s activities encourage 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.
