Jorge Adalberto's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy potato seeds, foliar fertilizers, hen droppings, manure and to pay for labor.


Jorge Adalberto's story

Jorge is 30 years old, single and lives with his mom and his siblings in an indigenous community of the municipality of Intibucá. He works cultivating and selling potatoes. He has worked cultivating potatoes for over 11 years, and he learned this trade from his family.

He cultivates high-quality potatoes in a land of his own, and he sells it to the retailers of the area. He also sells at the local market. He’s requesting a loan of 18,000 Lempiras to buy potato seeds, foliar fertilizers, hen droppings, manure and to pay for labor.

This will help him increase his production and have a better financial stability with the incomes from his sales. His dream is to finish building his house and continue with his plantation so that he can pay for the household expenses.
