Supporting Women Entrepreneurs

In Intibucá, TechnoServe helped a group of indigenous women of Lenca ethnicity cultivate and sell ornamental flowers through the Floricultura El Clavel cooperative. Between 2009-2012, the 12 members of the cooperative learned crucial business skills and agronomic practices, and accessed funding and a growing market in which they can sell their product at a fair price. By the project's completion, the cooperative had built two greenhouses and increased monthly revenue ninefold.
