To promote sustainable development and regional integration in the northern department of Estelí, where agriculture is the main economic activity. The project includes the upgrading of a 22-km road – presently usable only during the dry season – to provide year-round access for some 110,000 people. The improved road will facilitate the transport of crops to marketplaces and enhance connectivity to social services and employment opportunities.
