Hernán's story

Sr. Hernán is 62 years old. He is in a common-law relationship with his wife and they have four children. Hernán resides in the town of Nueva Frontera in the Department of Santa Barbará with his wife, a daughter, and two grandchildren.


Don Hernán has been a farmer for 30 years. He produces coffee, corn, and beans. At the moment, he is requesting his first loan in the amount of 10,000 HNL now that he has become familiar with the services that ODEF provides. He plans to invest this capital in the purchase of fertilizers and compost, as well as pay the cost of labor to clear his farmland.


Don Hernán expects to obtain a better yield so that he can increase the quantity of products that he offers to his customers.
