Martina's story

Doña Martina is 57 years old and lives in a suburban section of the city of Gracias Lempira alongside her husband. She has been growing coffee for five years. Martina previously cultivated vegetables and basic grains. Whatever she produces is sold at the district market in Gracias Lempira.

This is the seventh loan she has requested from ODEF. Martina needs to buy fertilizers and pay for labor in order to maintain her coffee farm. This loan will help to improve her farm and achieve better yields. As a result, she will generate a good income for improving her family's quality of life.
