A loan of $1,175 helped to buy farm supplies.

Santos Alfredo's story

Santos, 21, is single living in a village in the municipality of Intibucá, La Esperanza.

Santos is a young man dedicated to agriculture; he’s worked with his family since he was little. Four years ago he managed to set up his own parcel of land where he grows potatoes. The area he lives in is apt for agriculture, in this case potatoes. He spends most of his time at it and helps his family cover household expenses. He sells his crops in the local market.

This is his first, 22,000 lempira, loan request that he will use to buy farm supplies for his potato crops and for technical assistance in order to improve his production level. His goal is to continue selling his crops at a good price and to buy more land to farm.
