Don Gregorio is 39 years old, married, and has six children. He lives in the Department of Intibucá and has always engaged in farm work. For more than 18 years, he has been growing his own potatoes and vegetables, such as cabbages and other produce. Whatever he produces is sold at the local market. He has requested several loans in order to keep his crops well-maintained.
Gregorio is currently requesting another loan in the amount of 30,000 HNL so that he can buy compost, insecticides, and fungicides. He will also pay to have his land cleared so that he can improve his harvest and earn more income for his family. His goal for the future is to spend time raising livestock in addition to farming.
