I have had the chance to see Agros' work first hand - on the ground in the Barillas area of northern Guatemala.
Part of what makes Agros unique is that their field operations are all run and staffed by locals, from management to agronomists, microlending experts, to office administrators.

The management team in Seattle is also very professional, and they do a fantastic job of providing updates on each of their programs.
