Hector Alexis's story

Hector, 38, is married and has two children; he lives in a village in Taulabe, Comayagua. He’s worked in agriculture since he was very young. He has a manzana [Central American unit of land measurement] planted with coffee that he sells in various varieties like damp parchment, grape coffee and gold. He earns good profits from his sales because his coffee is good quality. The place where he lives is apt for this type of crop.

He’s currently asking for his 12th loan for 25,000 Lempiras to buy fertilizer to plant one-half manzana of coffee, to clear the fields and to provide crop maintenance. His plan is to continue caring for his crops so they can resist illnesses like ‘roya’ [coffee blight]. He also plans to increase his income in order to complete his children’s education.
