This is How to End Rural Poverty in Latin America

What’s the most you have spent on coffee before? I once spent $28 on Kona coffee beans in Maui.

Contrastingly, I’m shocked to learn that most Latin American farmers, of crops including coffee, live below $2 a day and will always be poor with their methods of subsistence farming.

Non-profit Pontis Nicaragua works with farm families to transform subsistence farms to enterprise farms. Enterprise farms are based on both solid agricultural and business practices. They are less chemical-dependent and use modern practices to produce yields 30-100% higher. The farms are run with ļ¬nancial discipline and spread risk over multiple crops.

How many times have you participated in the random act of kindness? Next time, instead of buying a cup of coffee for that stranger behind you in the Starbucks drive thru, consider donating to Pontis and help a family rise out of poverty, and join us in building small farms that provide for generations.

They are doing some meaningful, great work at Pontis. To help eliminate poverty in Latin America, click here to make a PayPal donation: https://lnkd.in/g5wcciE Or read more about Pontis here https://pontisnicaragua.org
