FAMU and its Farmer-to-Farmer volunteers will work with the faculty, staff, students and administrators at Haitian universities and non-governmental organizations to build a strong Small Enterprise Development Program that focuses on developing small agro-enterprises. FAMU’s Farmer-to-Farmer program will help students gain practical agribusiness experience through internships in their communities organized through Food For the Poor. FAMU Farmer-to-Farmer challenges local students participating the program to achieve a 40 percent profit margin. FAMU anticipates that this approach will help to prepare agriculture graduates for self-employment.
