A loan of $1,675 helped a member to buy fertilizers for his coffee crop.

Superando Group's story

Alex is 32 years old, married, and has one child. He resides in a rural community in the town of Atima in the Department of Santa Barbará. Alex previously cultivated basic grains, such as corn and beans, for personal consumption. Five years ago, he began cultivating coffee that he could sell to brokers. At the moment, he is participating in a group loan request and will invest his share in the purchase of fertilizers for his coffee farm. With the financial support he will receive, Alex will be able to achieve a better harvest. This will motivate him to continue producing and expanding his crops. His long-term goal is to succeed financially and provide what his family needs to live well.

Alex is a member of the solidarity group named “Superando” (Excelling), which consists of six individuals who appear in the photo. The members seen standing, from left to right, are Melvin, Rogelio, Daniel, and Adalberto. The gentlemen who are seated are Alber on the left and Alex on the right (who is also the group coordinator).

All of the members produce and sell wet parchment coffee. They reside in the same community and will use their respective loans to purchase fertilizers. The total group loan amounts to 33,000 HNL and each member will receive 5,500 HNL.
