Franz's story

Sr. Franz is originally from the town of Monteagudo, but he moved to the community of Sauzalito and settled on land owned by his father. As a young boy, he learned about farming tasks from his father by helping him with his work each day. Franz comes from a very humble family. His father is a farmer and his mother is a housewife. Franz completed his secondary studies in the town of Huacareta, but he also obtained technical training at the CETEP Ernest Theobald Alternative Institute, where he studied apiculture for a year.

Franz needs a loan so that he can expand and improve his honey production. He plans to buy more beehives and acquire the necessary equipment to manage his apiary so that he can produce larger quantities of honey of better quality. Franz already has an established market for his honey and is able to sell his product at good prices. The land on which he lives is suitable for his business, but he is looking for an additional source of income so that he can improve his quality of life.
