Isaul's story

Isaul, 61, is married and has seven children. He lives with his family in a village in the municipality of Taulabe, Comayagua. Isaul has been working in agriculture for 15 years. He has a lot of experience growing coffee, sugarcane, corn and beans. Coffee production is both in parchment and grape. He sells his production in the local market. His crops have been well helped along thanks to various loans he’s invested in them. He’s currently requesting his 8th loan for 20,000 Lempiras. He will use this loan to pay for laborers for the sugarcane planting and to buy 20 quintals of manure for the coffee plants and basic grain crops like corn and beans. His goal is to attain two manzanas [Central American unit of land measurement] of sugarcane production to improve income and profits to pay for his children’s schooling and to do some home improvements.
