Leandro's story

Leandro, age 42, is married and has six children. He lives in a village in the Intibucá department. Leandro has worked in farming his whole life.

He has been growing corn, beans, and potatoes for over 15 years. He sells this production at the local market. He has invested several loans in his crops by providing the crops with good care.

He is now requesting his eleventh loan, and it is for 15,000 lempiras. He will use the loan to buy potato seeds and manure. He will also pay for the labor to plant and maintain these crops. His objective is to give greater care to the crops to increase his production volume in order to improve his income.
