Livelihoods: Producer associations – supporting farmers in Honduras

A case study about the benefits and challenges of a project supporting farmers in Honduras

2016

A membership scheme called APROCEL was created to support and generate income for farmers working in the mountainous region of Belen Gualcho, Honduras. For an annual subscription fee of 500 Lempira, farmers are given access to valuable technical support, irrigation programs, and the market and transportation. With the help of the scheme, farmers have been able to move from subsistence to surplus farming. However, there are challenges with farmers struggling to meet their quotas. Consequently, they are having to sell their produce to other local markets for a lower price.

This case study discusses these successes and explores possible solutions to these challenges.
