Since over 70 percent of the population relies on agriculture for their livelihoods, USAID focuses on increasing farm income and improving nutrition for farm households throughout the country. Our partnerships support activities aimed at improving incomes by increasing farm productivity and establishing links to new markets.

USAID is helping over 33,000 people in 250 com-munities earn higher incomes, improve their nutri-tion, and manage their economic assets more effectively.

Additionally, USAID is a new development leader in the tourism sector, focused on sustainably increasing the number of tourists visiting the country and improving their satisfaction, which translates into new jobs and stronger businesses.
