Brisas Del Norte. Group's story

Gregorio is 32-years old. He is in a common-law marriage and has 4 children. He lives with his family in a village that belongs to the town of Intibucá. He has been growing potatoes and vegetables for more than 15 years. He has these crops on his own land and sells them in the area market.

The loan he is asking for is in group form, with which he is going to buy fertilizers, fungicides and potato seeds. This way he will be able to give his crops good maintenance. His plan is to improve his crops and his family's quality of life, as well as increasing his sales and production and giving his children a good education.

The group is called "Brisas del Norte" and is formed by 3 members who live in the same community and work growing potatoes and vegetables. The group loan is for 45,000 Lempiras and they will use it to fertilize their crops and plant in other plots. In the photo they are show as: Carmen to the left, Gregorio and Maria to the right.

In this group: Gregorio, Carmen Yessenia, Maria Erminia
