A loan of $3,875 helped a member to buy seeds to grow potatoes.

Agricultores Capellania Iii Group's story

Macario Alejandro is 40 years old and single. He has a sixth grade education.

He devotes himself to farming; he grows Icta Frit type potatoes. He started this work by planting on his parents’ land. So far he has 16 years of experience.

He organized a group to be able to request a loan. He will use the loan to buy seeds, and he will also buy the fertilizer he needs so that his products give him good income.

In the future he hopes to have a greater extension of land in order to have more production.

The rest of the members of the group devote themselves to the same work, growing Icta Frit type potatoes.

In this group: Macario Alejandro, Romeo Felicito, Esvin Rolando, Isidro, Alvaro Gregorio, Raul German Virgilio, Juan, Damian, Benito, Apolinario
