Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the hemisphere, with 65% of the population living below the poverty line. The greatest need exists in rural areas, where dry terrain and stagnant markets make income sources limited. Trickle Up works in isolated communities along the Kucra River. Our microenterprise program results in huge improvements in the quality of life for entrepreneurs living there, and builds the capacity of local grassroots organizations.
Your gift will enable our local partner agency to train a poor farmer in organic, sustainable approaches to agriculture so that they can grow healthy food, increase their yield, use biogas generators, increase income for their family, and protect the environment. Through our local partner, Sustainable Harvest International, Trickle Up provides communities with 1 to 3 years of training and monitoring in cost-effective organic farming techniques.
