Document typeEvaluation report
This evaluation is presented as part of the Effectiveness Review Series 2013/14, selected for review under the livelihoods thematic area. This report documents the findings of a quasi-experimental evaluation carried out in March 2014 that sought to assess the impact of the activities of the ‘Strengthening small farmers' agribusiness capabilities in western Honduras’ project.
The overall objective of the project was to contribute to the improvement of income generation and food security of families in six municipalities in western Honduras. Project activities included: technical support to improving agricultural production, improvements in access to markets, and strengthening administrative credit and financial structures in the community. The project activities were implemented by Oxfam GB in conjunction with a local partner organisation – Organismo Cristiano de Desarrollo Integral de Honduras (OCDIH). The project started in 2010 and completed in March 2014 as a continuation of previous projects which were implemented from approximately 2007 to 2010 in the same geographical areas as the project under analysis, but covering a greater number of villages.
