Agricultores De Capellania Ii Group's story

Marto is 36 years old and is married. He completed the sixth grade in primary school and he has one child who is in school. He makes a living in agriculture planting Icta Frit potatoes [a Guatemalan variety]. He started this work planting his parent's land and he now has 18 years of experience. He has the support of his wife who is a domestic worker.

He organized this group to request a loan which he will use to set aside as working capital to purchase Icta Frit potato seeds and fertilizer. He hopes that in the future he will have more land to generate more produce.

The rest of the members of the group make their living in the same type of work, planting Icta Frit potatoes.

In this group: Marto, Gilberto, Onorio, Olegario, Onorio Pascual, Jorge, Nazario, Aroldo Pascual*, Vicente, Gonzalo Augusto
