La Cuesta Group's story

The group “La Cuesta” is located in the village that has the same name. It is comprised of 4 individuals – two men and two women who are neighbors and have different business from which they earn income and use to get ahead. Below are more details on their different businesses:

Jacinto F. is 49 years old, married, and has 5 children. Some of his children help him with his cattle and with his corn crops. Jacinto receives income from selling curd, milk, and corn mills. He lives comfortably and is a very hardworking and honest person. He will use the loan to invest in the purchase of young bulls to sell since he has a small weight where he cuts beef and sells them in the markets of the region.

Santos Dominga V. Reyes is 38 years old, lives in a common-law marriage, and has three children who are her dependents. Santos has her own house and a vehicle that she uses to transport the vegetables that she sells. Every day, she goes out to sell the vegetables that she first purchases in Tegucigalpa and then sells in San Lorenzo and neighborhoods. She goes to Tegucigalpa three times each week and it takes two days to sell the vegetables that she brings. She will use the loan to purchase vegetables.

Juan Maria F. C. is 44 years old, married, and has five children who are his dependents. He works raising and selling cattle as well as selling milk and curd. He has been doing so for several years. Juan is a very supportive and reliable person, dedicated to his family and his business. He will use the loan to purchase a young bull. His biggest dream is to have a lot of cattle and be assured of the well being of his family.

Jessica Yolibeth C. M. is 29 years old, lives in a common-law marriage, and has two children who are her dependents. Her husband is a policeman. Her family income comes from the purchase and sale of vegetables that she first buys in Tegucigalpa and then sells in Nacaome and San Lorenzo. She goes to Tegucigalpa twice a week and sells her products from her vehicle. She has a person that drives the car and she attends to the customers. She has been in this business for the past 2 years. She will use the loan to invest in the purchase of more vegetables so that she can have more earnings and meet her family’s needs.
