Burke Agro is on the ground every day with individual producers and cooperatives to encourage certifications and farmer development programs that benefit Nicaraguan farming families and their communities. Access to credit is one of the gaps in the food system that Burke Agro bridges through its credit program.

The development of smallholder farmers is an integral part of Burke Agro's mission. As such, grants and projects are not viewed as isolated initiatives, but rather are woven directly into the company’s operations to assure short term coherence and long term sustainability. We have deep meaningful partnerships with brands, manufacturers and development agencies that share our vision and passion for social and environmental impact.
