A loan of $1,625 helped a member to buy fertilizer and manure to prepare land to plant coffee.


G.s. San Bartolome Group's story

Santiago is 44 years old, married and has eight children. He lives with his family in a village that belongs to the municipality of Intibucá. He has been growing coffee on his own land for over 9 years. He sells his production on the local market, which is how he gets his revenue.

He is requesting his second loan from the institution as a group loan with the goal of buying fertilizer and manure to prepare land to grow coffee and assist his plants. His plan is to continue to expand his production to obtain greater economic stability and use his earnings to provide his family a better quality of living.

The group is called G.s San Bartolome and is made up of three members who live in the same community and make a living growing coffee. The group loan is for 38,000 Lempiras and will be used to seed, fertilize and expand their coffee crops. In the photo they are: on the left Jose Lino, Jose Martin and Santiago is on the right.
