Together with our partners, TechnoServe is helping to grow strong markets that create opportunities for enterprising people in the developing world.
- Where We Work
Approximately 98,000 Garífuna people live in Honduras, mostly concentrated on the North Coast. TechnoServe is providing technical and business development assistance to ten groups of Garifuna women, representing 300 members, to improve cassava productivity and sell their flat bread product in local and export markets.
In Southern Nicaragua, TechnoServe is executing a cocoa project in partnership with the PIMCO Foundation to support a group of 100 farmers, the majority of whom are women. The project aims to generate incomes for poor families by giving them the opportunity to produce fine cocoa to sell to national and international buyers.
