Economic Support Packages for Farmers Under Sembrando Vida-Belize Project

Farmers in northern Belize received economic support packages this week under the Sembrando Vida-Belize project. The initiative comes from the government of Mexico through a collaboration between the Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation (AMEXCID) and Belize’s Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise. On Wednesday, farmers from Orange Walk and Corozal received ATM cards giving them each access to two thousand dollars in grant funds for the development of their farms. Pantalon Escobar, National Coordinator for AMEXID explained that the project has three major components, chief among them is training and capacity building for farmers. 

Escobar added that the other components are focused on arming farmers with the necessary financing and materials they need to upgrade their farms and employ the practices they learn during training. 

The ministry will be distributing ATM cards for farmers in the Belize, Cayo, Stann Creek and Toledo districts, next week. The Sembrando Vida project is the product of the signed commitments made by the governments of Belize and Mexico on May 7, 2022, during the official visit of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
