Salomón's story

Salomón is 44 years old. He lives with his wife and two children in the hamlet of Morillo in Shanao, Lamas. He has been growing coffee for eight years, diversifying his income with private daily wages by raising chickens, and growing bananas and corn.

Salomón will invest his loan in the purchase of fertilizer, increasing his productivity and improving his quality, all the while generating income that will allow him to pay for his family's needs and save for his children's education.
