Fernando Durón, Los Ranchos, San Francisco La PAz, Olancho, Honduras.
Farming projects here are supported by World Renew through their partner Diaconia. Fernando explains that they are planting beans to be sold as seeds, plus cabbages. Recently he explains "this area has sufferred from climate change, severe droughts, and the only way we can get a crop to harvest is to use irrigation."
They have received support including the seeds, irrigation pipes and technical advice.
"Most houses here have people who have left as migrants to the US. The main problems are unemployment and very low wages, some people pay $4 a day, but the cost of living is higher than that. Agriculture is failing and without any support it is hard to plant anything. Since the big droughts we have lost a lot of faith in farming".
