Santiago's story

Santiago, 40, is married and has 4 children. He lives with his family in a town in the municipality of Lempira. Santiago has been cultivating his own coffee crops for 14 years. He produces wet-processed and dry-processed parchment (un-hulled) coffee, which he sells in the local market. He is requesting his 4th loan from ODEF for 25,000 Honduran lempiras, which he will use to buy chemical and organic fertilizers to maintain his coffee crops and increase his coffee farm's production. This way he can increase his household income each year. His goal is to provide his children with an education.
