In this opportunity 61 men and women producers from the communities of Laguna Seca and Jocotan, in the Municipality of Mercedes, in the Ocotepeque Department, met with technical staff of the Honduras Brotherhood Association to socialize the objectives, goals, activities and commitments established by the Project for that area.
