About

Antonio is launching the El Carrizal Business Center in Namasigue, Honduras, to create opportunities and jobs in his home area. The business center will provide tools and skills that local farmers need to plant vegetables, along with storage so they can sell excess produce to the Business Center and receive a share of the profit from its resale at market. Also, farmers will participate in entrepreneurship seminars and therefore have a better chance of emerging from subsistence farming into running their own small businesses.
