Now that the month of July has come to a close, we need to, sadly, say goodbye to an important part of our team. Anthony, Malia and Trisha, UMF's first interns are headed back to the United States after a summer in the mountains of La Union Honduras.
These three did tremendous work for us this summer, from collecting loan applications, working with farmers and their families, organization agro-educational meetings and loan repayment sessions to creating marketing materials and spending countless hours filling out excel spread sheets.
Even though from time to time they would disappear only to be found in a near by city, up a mountain or under a waterfall, we cannot deny that they pushed UMF to the next level.
All three came down to Honduras on their own accord with countless other opportunities for their summer. They all paid their own way.
Anthony, Trisha and Malia, we thank you for your summer of work and joining UMF in Honduras. We hope you have a successful fall and stay intimately involved in UMF and Honduras!
