Photo of the Week: Yesterday the War … Today Businesses

In 1996, TechnoServe founder Ed Bullard traveled to northern Nicaragua to visit members of the Enrique Bermúdez Cooperative. Two years earlier, these farmers were soldiers emerging from a civil war. With TechnoServe’s assistance, they began to plant trees and revive the barren land, which was decimated from years of war. TechnoServe helped the farmers reintroduce coffee trees and connect to markets for their crops. The former soldiers formed a cooperative and committed themselves to rebuilding their livelihoods.
