Workers for the Aguan Valley Palm Producers Association (APROVA) in Honduras load bunches of fruit from oil palm trees. The fruit is used to create palm oil and is a key agricultural product in Honduras. TechnoServe began working with APROVA in 2007 to strengthen the business and improve the agricultural practices of the 154 farming families in the association. With TechnoServe's assistance, farmer profits have doubled and APROVA opened its first oil processing plant in 2009.
