Follow a FTF volunteer around the DR!
Farmer to Farmer volunteer, Rhett Farrell, is currently in the Dominican Republic and he is posting updates and photos on his blog: http://www.ace345finblog.com/dr-farmer-to-farmer-blog/ Please visit Rhett's blog to see the work he is doing with avocado farmers and greenhouse associations to improve their business management skills and to assist them in accurately calculating their costs of production. The volunteer is providing trainings to farmers and associations on measuring costs, accounting methods, micro-credit assessments and the valuation of production resources. With this information the farmers and associations will be able to make better decisions about future financial investments, production plans, and alternative markets.
