THP-Benin's October 2010 Update to the Global Board
The following are highlights from April-October 2010 from The Hunger Project-Benin:
1. The beginning of construction and monitoring at the new Borgou 2 Epicenter. This epicenter is located in the Daringa Djougou District.
2. Identification of the epicenter planned in Zou department. This epicenter, named Tré, is currently in Phase One.
3. Increased food production in most epicenters through greater availability of fertilizers for farmers in the villages. This helped improve epicenter food production and subsequently the level of stocks in food banks.
4. Progress in the Microfinance Program, resulting in the creation of a network of four Rural Banks.
