The Transforming Market Systems Activity (TMS) reflects collaboration between the Government of Honduras and USAID/Honduras under the key initiatives of the Alliance for Prosperity and Honduras 20/20 to address the root causes of illegal migration and contribute to a more prosperous, secure, and inclusive Honduras. TMS works with government, civil society, and the private sector in Honduras to facilitate systemic change in Honduran market systems that grow demand for products, create self-employment, generate new jobs and economic opportunities for USAID beneficiaries at a scale, depth, and geographic concentration to create transformational change in local economies.
The Transforming Market Systems (TMS) activity fosters competitive, resilient, and inclusive market systems that provide increased economic opportunities that incorporate women, youth, ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, the poor, and other marginalized groups who are often excluded—or even exploited—by traditional market systems.
