Building Resilience for Farmers in Honduras

USAID and Wal-mart have partnered to raise the income of local farmers through technical assistance and access to new markets in Honduras.

MOU between USAID/Honduras and Walmart Mexico and Central America

USAID and Wal-mart have signed a cooperative agreement to support small rural farmers in Honduras. The initiative focuses on areas most vulnerably to food insecurity in the country and aims at building resilience and higher living standards among farmers. The partnership creates a direct synergy between the Feed the Future Initiative and Walmart's Global Sustainable goals to sell $1 billion in food sourced directly from small and medium farmers in emerging markets and to provide training to 1 million emerging market farmers of which half are expected to be women to raise the income of small and medium farmers it sources by 10 to 15%. USAID will provide technical assistance and help farmers acquire access to agricultural supplies. Wal-mart in turn will provide producers with unique market access through their stores Supertiendas Paiz, Walmart, Maxi Bodega, and Despensa Familiar.
