Voices from the Field: Edras Mateo in Honduras


Edras Mateo lives in Belen Gualcho, a town of about 18,000 residents in the Ocotepeque province in western Honduras.  He is one of 122 program farmers in Belen Gualcho (out of 471 program farmers in Ocotepeque) who are receiving an integrated package of training that involves crop management, business skills, marketing, and post-harvest handling under the MCC-funded Rural Development Project.  Edras and the majority of the farmers who have been trained are examples of MCC’s commitment to sustainably increase the profitability of men and women involved in agriculture.
