A loan of $375 helped to purchase fertilizers and clean out his property so as to achieve a better harvest.


Lucas's story

Señor Lucas is 41 years old. He has been married for the last 16 years and has two children aged 7 and 15 who both attend school. He lives in La Unión, in Lempira.

Don Lucas is a farmer who has been working growing coffee and basic grains such as corn and beans for the last 18 years. His father inherited 2 areas of farmland, and he started working with coffee plants when he was young. He realized that this crop was something he enjoyed, and currently it is a profitable business. For this reason he decided to dedicate more time to it.

He is very grateful for the loan because he will be able to purchase fertilizers that will help him with upkeep for his crops of coffee and basic grains, with the end-goal of having good harvests.

With the profits, he will improve his home and continue to support his children in their education.
