A loan of $800 helped a member to buy manure for his lettuce crops.

El Tabor Group's story

Alexander, 31, lives in the village of Tobar in Intibucá with his wife and two children who are 4 and 5 years old.

Since he was little Alexander worked in agriculture helping his father and fifteen years ago became independent installing his own lettuce and broccoli crops. In order to provide crop maintenance, he’s asking for a 3000 lempira loan. This is his second loan from ODEF and he’s going to use it to buy manure for the lettuce crops to be able to reap good harvest. His plan is to improve production to earn better income sufficient to cover family expenses.

He belongs to a communal bank called “El Tabor” that has four members. In the photo he’s on the right wearing the red shirt. Nest to him is Raimundo, María Benita and Alba Teresa is on the left. They all live in the community and grow lettuce, cauliflower and potatoes. The total group loan is for 15000 lempiras.
