A loan helped to purchase fertilizers and pay labor costs to weed his crop.


José Marvin's story

José is 39 years old, in a common-law marriage with his spouse and lives in the municipality of San Marcos, Santa Bárbara department.

José has worked producing and selling plantains for a year. This business is his primary source of income.

Currently, he is asking for a loan for the amount of 8,000 lempiras. He plans to invest in the purchase of fertilizers and pay labor costs to weed his crop.

His goal is to grow more plantains and, with the earnings gotten, make improvements to his house.
