Job Description:
Agros International restores hope and opportunity to the world's poor.

Agros is a non-profit organization helping rural poor families in Central America and Mexico escape the cycle of poverty by purchasing their own land. Agros extends land loans to purchase farmland and partners with families in applying sustainable agricultural practices.

Taking a holistic and sustainable approach to development, Agros works to restore the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual brokenness of the people we serve. Agros is an organization that desires to follow the teachings of Jesus by serving the rural poor regardless of their faith.

Our vision is to see rural poor families own agricultural land, attain economic self-sufficiency, realize their God-given potential and pass on to future generations the values and resources that enable them to flourish.

This person should have an outgoing personality and demonstrated effectiveness in relationship building and fundraising (in particular, with major donors). Candidate should be a strong self-starter, flexible, well organized person comfortable with multi-tasking. Computer proficiency and experience with Microsoft Office Suite is required. Because of Agros international focus, familiarity and interest in cultural diversity is essential. Other requirements are that the applicant is passionate about our ministry, trustworthy, innovative, a team-player and has the heart of a servant.
