For this purpose, the Honduran Executive approved an investment of 30 million lempiras (1,219,555 dollars), which will serve to address extreme poverty in more than 2,000 villages nationwide, local media reported.
According to Canal Ocho, associated with the Government, Suplidora Nacional de Productos Basicos (Banasupro) signed a new interinstitutional agreement with the Red Solidaria Program to prepare the donation.
This is my first agreement as Minister of Red Solidaria and it is made with Banasupro because the first thing is food, without food people cannot develop, the head of the program, Marissela Figueroa, said.
For her part, Banasupro Manager Aida Reyes pointed out that they will comply with the agreement in the most transparent way to benefit the families identified by Red Solidaria.
According to data from the National Institute of Statistics of Honduras, 73 percent of the country’s population is poor, while 53 percent live in extreme poverty.
