Obed's story

Obed is 27 years old, married, and lives with his wife in their own house in the town of Patuca Olancho, which is in eastern Honduras. He works in agriculture and has been cultivating cassava for many years. Obed says that he is doing well because of his production. As a result, he was able to acquire the property on which he works.

Obed is requesting a loan to buy compost and fertilizers for his cassava crops, which will enable him to continue having good production. His dream is to move forward when his family grows. With the support of this loan, he will be able to achieve his dreams.
