La Suyapita Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy fertilizer, manure and pesticides and to tend to his crops.

La Suyapita Group's story

Rogelio is 38 years old and lives alone in his house that is located in a neighborhood in Cofradia, Cortes. He works growing vegetables including tomatoes, radishes, chilli peppers, coriander, corn and beans. He has been doing this work for 19 years in a field by his house. He sells his harvest in the market and to middlemen in the area.

He is asking for his second loan from ODEF with which he plans to buy fertilizers, manure, and pesticides and to tend to his vegetable and basic grain crops. This will help ensure a better harvest. His dream is to expand his crop to another part of the land and improve his quality of life and help his family.

This is a group loan for a group called La Suyapita. It is made up of four people who live in the same community and work growing vegetables and basic grains. They are asking for a group loan of 105,000 Lempiras to buy fertilizers, manure and pesticides to care for their crops.
