A loan helped buy boxes for beehives, bee feed and other materials needed for the production of organic honey.


Leopoldo's story

Leopoldo does not want to depend solely on his coffee income, therefore, he wants to start a production of honey that he plans to sell through COCAFCAL, of which he is a member. Not depending on only one source of income means that Leopoldo will have more opportunities of improving his family's quality of life.

The production of honey is very popular in the area due to the wide variety of trees, which provide favorable conditions for a plentiful and high quality product.

Leopoldo is requesting a loan to buy the necessary materials to start the production of honey. With the profits, he hopes to have an extra income to improve his family's quality of life.

The loan will help Leopoldo provide better living conditions for his family.
