Measured Success – Small Farm Scorecard

March 9, 2017 Salpicardeverde

MATAGALPA:  Pontis introduced an all-new small farm scorecard to track progress as farm families enter the Pontis Sustainable Agriculture Program and proceed through the steps.  Starting in January, Pontis agronomist and technicians are visiting farms and recording their crops and progress in the program.

"We used a very participatory process to develop the scorecard," commented Leck Heflin, Executive Director, "We got inputs from our agronomists, plus some of our technicians who were actual farmers.  The result is a simple way to see how people are progressing."

This card for the Juarez Martinez farm shows one step in this family's progress towards a true enterprise farm.  Measured progress is the road to success in their journey out of poverty.
