Raquel's story

Raquel, 58, has four children. He lives in a rural community in Siguatepeque Municipality, Comayagua. His nuclear family is composed of his wife and four children (25, 22, 18 and 13 years old). At present, two of his children are attending elementary and secondary school.

His economic activity is farming (bean and corn production). He learned to work the land from his parents when he was still a boy. He has asked for a loan to buy farm supplies (fertilizer and products to manage pests and illnesses). He believes that by providing better management to his crops harvests will be larger and so will his income.
