El Zamorano, October 5, 2007.- In order to promote the Rural Development Project, MCA-Honduras participated in the ECO-AGRICULTURA fair organized by the El Zamorano Agricultural School, which included conferences by experts of different nationalities, and the exhibition of several goods and services

The activities of the Rural Development Project are aimed at converting farmers into agribusiness owners, facilitating the transporting of their goods to local, regional and international  markets, and assisting them in accessing agricultural credit.

The goal set forth by MCA-Honduras is to smooth the progress of profitable and sustainable businesses for approximately 8,300 small and medium farmers -currently occupying 14,400 hectares-, helping them to obtain a net annual income of not less of US$ 2,000 per hectare.

MCA-Honduras specialists distributed brochures, bulletins and other information on the Project´s activities, which include:  Farmers Training and Development Activity (FTDA), Farmers Access to Credit Activity (FACA); Farms to Market Roads Activity, and the Public and Semi-Public Grant Fund.  The event also represented a good opportunity to share information with the public in general, and with suppliers of agricultural goods and services
