Who We Are
ACCESO, a four-year project funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), is assisting more than 30,000 households in six departments in western Honduras. The project, which began in April 2011, is working to lift rural households out of poverty and malnutrition conditions through access to economic development opportunities and improved health and nutrition practices. The project is increasing sales and incomes by introducing good agricultural practices and market-driven production programs for high-value cash crops, as well as expanding off-farm microenterprise and employment opportunities.
ACCESO is part of the US government's Feed the Future initiative and is USAID's main investment in Honduras. The project is implemented by Fintrac Inc., in collaboration with a number of Honduran nongovernmental organizations, private, and public sector partners.
