Beneficiary Farmers of the Water Harvests Project Currently Being Trained in alliance with INFOP

Mr. Erik Daniel Aguilera, Regional Subdirector of INFOP;  Mr. Julian García, Instructor, and Mr. Mario Noboa, Manager of the Water Harvest Project, designing the guidelines to conduct the training workshops.

Nacaome, Valle, November 28, 2008.- 300 beneficiaries of the Water Harvest Project, financed by the Millennium Challenge Account-Honduras in the Municipality of Nacaome, in the Valle Department, will participate in the training program to be conducted by instructors of the regional office of the National Institute for Professional Training (INFOP).

The training program is aimed at promoting association among producers, facilitating competitiveness and sustainability in production processes and in commercialization.  It is expected that as a result, producers will be able to improve their income from sales, since their current lack of marketing skills are preventing them to increase their profits.

Since for years INFOP has been characterized for its experience and leadership in training new professionals, the Project decided to establish a strategic alliance by which the farmers residing in the communities assisted by the Water Harvest Project, will be trained by INFOP instructors.

The modules to be implemented as part of the training will comprise, in a six month period, the following: Module II on Entrepreneurial Techniques and Competitiveness, and Module III on Market Based Production Commercialization,

Through this Project, the Millennium Challenge-Account is guaranteeing efficient agriculture production, thus contributing to the economic growth in favor of the farmers of the Nacaome area.
