Pacanal 1, B2 Group's story

Melchor is 36-years-old (he's pictured in the photo first from the left, in the black t-shirt). He has two children. The first one is 15 and in seventh grade. The other is 7 and in first grade. Melchor earns his living selling maxan leaves in the community where he lives; a lot of buyers come from the capital. He is seeking a loan for upkeep of his maxan. He plans to use earning from selling the maxan leaves to buy a plot of land and plant more maxan. A group got together so members could help each other maintain their maxan and have better opportunities to sell their product for a higher price.
