Our Staff

Agros' administrative, development, communications, and finance work is headquartered in the Belltown neighborhood of Seattle, WA, where we have a staff of eight. Between Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua, over 30 staff members work in our core opportunity areas of land ownership, market-led agriculture, financial empowerment, and health & well being, as well as finance and administration. Together we are motivated by the teachings of Jesus to serve others—especially those having few resources—with love, integrity, and humility.
