Tres Caminos Rio Grande Group's story

Sr. Jose María is 29 years old, married, and lives with his wife and four children in a neighborhood in the Department of Intibucá. Jose grew up in a farming family and lives in an area that is suitable for crops. For the past five years, he has been growing his own crops of potatoes, vegetables, corn, and beans and selling what he produces at the local market. He is requesting a loan of 9,000 HNL so that he can buy fertilizers, compost, potato seedlings, and green bean seeds for growing crops and to provide good maintenance. His goal is to continue working so that he can maintain a productive business and provide an education for his children.

Jose belongs to the group called “Tres Caminos Rio Grande”, which consists of 12 members who engage in agriculture and live in the same community.
