Maximino
Mr. Maximino is 52 years old, married, and has three children. His wife works in the home and raises chickens. They live in the community of Las Cañitas, in Olancho. He started out working with his brother and, little by little, saved enough to buy a farm to grow corn, beans, and coffee. He has done this work for 20 years and works from 6:00 until 1:00 pm every day. He goes to the farm to fight plagues and harvest coffee. The good part of his business is that each year the harvest gives him good income and with his earnings he buys another plot of land and a mule, also that the products will be delivered to his farm. The inconveniences he faces are that vehicles cannot drive in the mountainous area so they have to transport products by mule, and sometimes he has to fight plagues with fungicide.


Maximino is asking for a loan to buy fertilizers to fertilize his farmland and clean it up. With the help of the loans he was able to buy doors for his house and fence in his property. His dreams are to improve his house, for his children to be professionals, and to have greater economic solvency to buy more land and grow more coffee. This is the second loan he has gotten from FAMA and he has been punctual with the payments.

La ventaja que tiene don Maximino es que cada año la cosecha le deja buenos ingresos y con la ganancia compra una manzana de tierra y una bestia mular, también que el producto lo van a traer hasta su finca, los inconvenientes que se le presentan es que en la montaña no entran los vehículos por lo que el producto lo tiene que trasladar en bestia, y que en algunas ocasiones entra la plaga y tiene que combatirla con fungicidas. El préstamo que don Maximino esta solicitando lo necesita para comprar fertilizantes, abonar la tierra de la finca y chapearla para que este limpia. Con la ayuda de los prestamos logro comprar las puertas de su casa y cercar su propiedad. Uno de sus sueños es mejorar su casa, que sus hijos sean profesionales y poder tener mayor solvencia económica para comprar mas tierras y cultivar mas café.
