Nicaragua: Bean Producers Get Together

Small bean producers will create a company that will sell the grain to Salvadoran importers.

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

The measure, whose implementation will cost $600 thousand for the construction of a plant in the city of Sebaco, aims to minimize the relationship between the Nicaraguan producer and the Salvadoran importer to increase bean harvest profits.

The website published: "At the same time, there is another project being executed through the Millennium Challenge Account - funds from the United States – with which it is sought to obviate Salvadoran and Honduran intermediation in the purchase of the Nicaraguan grain.
Both plans are part of a larger program being run by various entities on a national scale. More than $30 million will be invested in projects for technical support to bean producers."
