A loan of $1,775 helped a member micro-irrigation.


Grupo Sicalbe 2 Group's story

This group of people lives 60 miles away from the city. They have joined together to work on a Micro-irrigation system since they grow tomatoes. They count on the 5 years of experience they have earned since their product is well-known and sold throughout Central America. The water they use comes from the Momostenango mountains. They live in the small village of Xeqeumayá. Currently they depend on the Micro-irrigation system but lack the funding due to scarce economic resources. This is the first time they request a loan from ASDIR. According to the study undertaken, the financial activities of the borrowers and the land they use for planting tomatoes, were verified. This is why they consider this the right time to increase their funds. This will help build up their crops to earn more, improve their standards of living, and sell their product at a lower price than the local market.

In this group: Estela Esperanza, Angelina, Onofre, Rosa, Santos, Martin, Candelaria, Petrona
