Lorenzo has harvested and sold corn for over 30 years. He is a hard worker and really enjoys being in the fields taking care of his crop. When the corn is ready to be sold, he transports it in his vehicle to different communities where he has fixed customers.

When the product supply is limited, he buys from other neighbors and sells it, generating an income that allows him to take care of his family, who take care of him back. In his free time during the day he sells firewood.

He is requesting the loan for 12,000.00 Lempiras to purchase products such as corn and firewood. He hopes that Prisma can support him.
