Welcome to ACCESO


Who We Are

ACCESO, a four-year project funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), worked with more than 165,000 men, women, and children across six departments in western Honduras. The project, which began in April 2011, lifted rural households out of poverty and malnutrition conditions through access to economic development opportunities, including new markets and improved health and nutrition practices. Project clients generated nearly $40.5 million in new incomes by introducing good agricultural practices and market-driven production programs for cash and staple crops, as well as by expanding off-farm microenterpirse and employment opportunities. The prevalence and standing among client children under the age of 5 decreased by roughly 40 percent in target communities. ACCESO also worked in natural resource management to improve community watershed and forestry management.

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.
