Roberto's story

Don Roberto is 56 years old. He lives in a neighborhood in the town of Morazan, Yoro, with his wife and three children (ages 3, 6, and 8).

Don Robert has been farming for more than 30 years. He grows primarily corn and beans, but he also operates a mini-grocery store. The corn and beans that he produces are sold at the local market. His crops are his source of income and he is able to maintain this business by investing his loans.

Roberto is currently requesting his fourth loan from ODEF so that he can continue maintaining his crops. He plans to fertilize and compost the land so that he can achieve good harvests and increase his sales. His plan is to expand his production area. On a personal level, he is committed to providing his children with everything they need to have a quality life.
