Supporting Women Entrepreneurs

In Intibucá, TechnoServe is helping a group of indigenous women of Lenca ethnicity cultivate and sell ornamental flowers through the Floricultura El Clavel cooperative. The 12 members of the cooperative are learning crucial business skills and agronomic practices, and accessing funding and a growing market in which they can sell their product at a fair price. The cooperative has built two greenhouses and increased monthly revenue ninefold since the program began.
