For the past two years, Cristian has been growing watermelons and has achieved good results. Whatever he produces is sold at the local market. He is requesting his third loan from ODEF in the amount of 15,000 HNL. The proceeds will be invested in supplies, such as compost, so that he can improve his crop. He will also pay for labor.
Cristian’s goal is to increase his production so that his family can move forward and achieve a better quality of life.
