Nueva Esperanza 5 Group's story

Nestor is 31 years old, is in a relationship, and lives with his wife and children in the municipality of Cucuyagua, Copan. He works in agriculture and cultivates vegetables such as carrots, coriander, radishes, lettuce and cucumbers. For the past 6 years, he has been doing this work. He sells his harvests by the quintal through brokers in the area. His land is located next to his home.

Previously, he made a living through cultivating basic grains. Currently, he is requesting a loan through the group to purchase fertilizers, compost and seeds to plant on his land. This loan will allow him to obtain better harvests. His goal is to improve his home. Nestor is part of the group Nueva Esperanza 5, which is requesting a loan in the amount of 27,000.00 Lempiras to invest in the purchase of fertilizer and compost to maintain optimal harvest conditions. The group is made up of 5 people who all work in agriculture.
