Emcograb Group's story

José, 66, is married and has five children who are all independent now. He lives in Níspero, Santa Bárbara with his wife, daughter and grandson. He’s been working in agriculture for forty years growing corn and beans. He stores his grain in metallic silos while it's waiting to be sold. His customers are from the local market. This activity is his source of income. He dreams with having great basic grain harvests, to be a great farmer and to be able to give his family better quality of life. José has requested several ODEF loans. He’s had 26 of them counting the current one; four of them were group loan cycles. He thanks ODEF for this support and now Kiva too.

The group is called “Emcograb” and it has 10 members but only five of them are included in this loan request. In the photo they are identified thus: Sandra is in front, Eustaquio is on the right, the one behind wearing the hat is José Olvi’s, Ramiro is wearing the blue striped shirt and José is in the rear. All of them live in the same community and work in basic grain agriculture.

The group loan sums 106,000 Lempiras and they will use it to buy supplies, enhanced corn and bean seeds and to pay labor costs aiming at improving production and their quality of life.

In this group: Jose Eudosio, Ramiro, Sandra Celina, Eustaquio, Jose Olvi
