Elder Mariano's story

Elder, 41 years old, lives in the village of Santa Rosa, Trojes, El Paraíso, in eastern Honduras. His primary business is agriculture. He gets the income from this business to meet his acquired financial commitments. With the loan that he is requesting, he plans to purchase fertilizer and to weed his crops and, in this way, get better yields.

His dream is to be able to improve his living condition and that of his family.
