City Profile

Nestled in the highlands of La Paz department in Honduras, lies a small town that is a treasure trove of cultural richness and diversity. Welcome to Marcala, a place where ancient traditions are still very much alive. Marcala is known for its coffee, which has been cultivated here for centuries. Coffee is not just a source of income for the people of Marcala. It is also an integral part of their culture. Aside from coffee, Marcala is also famous for its handicrafts. Local artisans create beautiful pieces using traditional techniques passed down from generation to generation.

The people of Marcala are proud of their heritage and have preserved their customs and traditions despite the challenges they face. Their economy is primarily agricultural, with coffee production being the primary source of income. Many families rely on coffee farming for their livelihood, which exposes them to the volatility of global prices. Despite this, the city has made progress in diversifying its economy, attracting investment in tourism and service industries. However, despite these developments, poverty remains a significant issue in Marcala. The poverty rate in the city is estimated to be around 68%, with many families struggling to afford safe, sustainable housing. Many families live in overcrowded, substandard conditions, which makes them vulnerable to health problems and natural disasters.

By working alongside the Honduran church, Casas por Cristo volunteers help alleviate families’ financial burdens and bring the hope of Christ to this remarkable land full of beauty, history, and culture. With the provision of safe and secure housing, the largest tangible gift anyone will ever receive, you can proclaim the truth of God’s love not only to a family but also to the community at large.
