Oscar Geovany's story

Oscar is a 35-year-old man. He lives in a common-law relationship with his partner in the municipality of Tocoa, Colón. He has three children.

He has worked in agriculture for 10 years growing African palm, and he also raises and fattens pigs. These business earn him an income to cover the daily expenses. He used to work as a day laborer.

He's requesting a loan from ODEF for the sum of 35,000 lempiras to invest in a purchase of quintals of fertilizer and foliar fertilizer, and pig feed. This loan will help him keep his crop in optimal conditions.

His goal is to yield bigger harvests.
