Flor Del Campo Group's story

Nicolasa is married and has 6 children, and she lives in the municipality of Intibuca. She has been a farmer all of her life, cultivating crops such as: radishes, broccoli, carrots, beets, cilantro, potatoes, and staple grains such as corn and beans. She sells her products in the local market. Nicolasa has decided to request a loan as a member of the group to help her with her crops. She plans to invest this loan in pesticides and organic fertilizers so that she can get a better yield. Her plan is to add other types of vegetables so that she can increase her family's income.

The communal bank that Nicolasa belongs to is called "Flor del Campo," and it is made up of 3 members who live in the same community and all work cultivating grains and vegetables. This group loan is for 18,000 Honduran lempiras, and it will be invested in organic fertilizers and pesticides to help the members maintain their crops.
