With TechnoServe’s assistance, the 12 women who cultivate and sell roses and carnations through the Floricultura El Clavel cooperative in Intibucá, Honduras, are strengthening their business

Flowers grow in the greenhouse of the Floricultura El Clavel cooperative in Intibucá, Honduras. With TechnoServe’s assistance, the 12 women who cultivate and sell roses and carnations through the cooperative are strengthening their business. By improving their productivity and connecting to better markets, they have more than doubled their average sale price. This means higher incomes and happier, healthier households.

This holiday season, we offer thanks to our supporters who make this change possible. We wish the happiest of holidays to you, and to the families in the developing world who benefit from your support.
