By |2020-07-08T14:01:06-04:001 May 2020|

Project Description

Many small- scale farmers in southern Honduras struggle to meet their families basic economic and food security needs in a region impacted by frequent droughts, limited employment options, and high rates of youth migration. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Honduras that provide alternatives to migration. Our grantee partner, the Asociación Perspírense de Agropecuario Limitada (APRAL), is an association of small-scale farmers that is increasing its capacity to produce, process, and market tropical fruit, so that it can expand to national markets. By doing so, APRAL will generate new jobs and higher incomes for community members.

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