La Flor Del Cafe Group's story

Jose, 52, has 6 children and lives in a rural community in the municipality of Nueva Frontera, in the department of Santa Barbara. Jose has worked in agriculture all of his life. He's been growing his own coffee, corn and bean crops for about 30 years. He sells his crops in the local market. He wants to have a big farm and improve his production so that he can have economic growth.

At this time, Jose wants to maintain his land so that he can keep on working. He decided to form a communal bank called "La Flor del Cafe." This group has 4 members who are identified in the photo as follows: at the left is Jose, beside him in the red shirt is Angel, next is Josue, and at the far right is Isrrael. They all live in the same community and are all farmers. This group loan is for 21,000 Honduran lempiras. They will use this loan to buy fertilizers and manure to maintain their land so that they can obtain better harvests.

In this group: Jose Otilio, Angel Maria, Josue Adaly, Isrrael
