A loan of $1,050 helps to invest in the purchase of classified potato seed, fertilizers and fungicides.


José Lisandro's story

José Lisandro is 38 years old, married and has three children. He lives with his family in the municipality of Intibuca. He has worked in agricultural jobs for the past 10 years. He mainly grows potatoes of excellent quality. He sells his harvests at a local market and in his community.

José Lisandro is asking for a loan of 25,000 lempiras from ODEF to invest in the purchase of classified potato seed, fertilizers and fungicides for a good development of his crops. This loan will help him improve his harvest and maintain income to offer a good quality of life to his family.
