Spanish Catholic organization helping poor farmers to acquire new business skills

.- The Catholic foundation Manos Unidos, based in Valencia, has launched project to help 160 poor farm workers—mostly single and illiterate mothers—to acquire new business skills and start small businesses.

The funds for the program from Manos Unidos, requested by the Chinandega Women’s Network for Life Foundation, will be used for the purchasing of equipment and materials to educate the women in ecological agriculture and other related fields.

The program will also teach participants how to make better use of natural resources, insecticides and how to cultivate family gardens rich in vitamins.  Likewise participants will learn how to improve their crops to sell them at local markets.
