The U.S. Government, through the Millennium Challenge Corporation, and in partnership with the Government of Morocco, is investing $33 million to issue titles on approximately 67,000 hectares of collectively owned land to farmers who have worked on the land for generations. MCC and the Millennium Challenge Account-Morocco will also support these farmers with literacy training, access to credit, and other programs to give them the tools to ensure they maximize the productivity of their land. The program will allow these farmers to become land owners and to invest in their land and earn better incomes for their families.
David Greene, Chargé d’Affaires of the U.S. Embassy in Morocco, visited the Haouz region today with MCC to meet with farmers and discuss the MCC Rural Land Activity. He also attended a workshop where women beneficiaries from the region learned about how the project can assist them in securing their inheritance rights. The Embassy is proud to support this effort to enable Moroccans, both men and women, to become land owners so that their land and all it produces will benefit them and their families into the future.
