José Danilo, 51, is married and has five children; he lives in a village in the municipality of San Miguelito, Intibucá.

He’s been growing potatoes, corn and beans for 22 years. It’s been his life’s source of income and he dedicates all the time necessary to it. He’s asking for his second ODEF loan. This one is for 6,993.20 lempiras to buy potato seeds and to buy fertilizer needed for the crops. With this loan he hopes to complement the project and expand his crops to attain better income and to improve his family’s standard of living.
