Purchase for Progress - P4P Honduras


P4P in Honduras

In Honduras, P4P focuses on providing a stable market to smallholder farmers. The implementation strategy focuses on investing in technology and building the technical capacity of farmers’ organizations (FOs). Infrastructure is created and rehabilitated through equipment provision and upgrading, and farmers have been linked to financial institutions to acquire credit through the use of revolving funds. Capacity development is carried out in postharvest handling and organizational strengthening. WFP offers P4P-supported farmers in Honduras an assured market by purchasing maize and beans to be distributed through the school meals programme, which is funded primarily by the Government of Honduras and managed by WFP.
