By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Sembrando Vida Project will be hiring their own extension officers to carry out the Mexico government-sponsored program that is expected to benefit 2,000 Belizean Farmers over the next three years.

According to Emilio Rene Montero, National Food and Nutrition Security Commission (NFNSC) coordinator, the Sembrando Vida project to be run by the Mexican International Agency for Cooperation and Development (Amexcid) is being implemented to assist small farmers that have within .5 of an acre to 5 acres of land under cultivation.

“These farmers will be getting an economic incentive for four months with agricultural inputs like fertilizer, seeds, irrigation systems, and so on. And eight months of training.”

Montero said that for Amexcid to carry out the project they will have to hire approximately 16 extension officers.

The announcement put out by the Governments of Belize and Mexico says the Sembrando Vida project is hiring persons to carry out Consultancy Services to perform functions as Agriculture Extension Officers for the Sembrando Vida project in Belize.

The Extension Officers hired will be expected to carry out “the Project’s workplans, implement programs, provide technical assistance, and establish lots as indicated.”
