A loan of $775 helped to buy fertiliser, prepare the land and increase his crop yield.

Pedro's story

Pedro is 61 years old. He is single and has three children. He lives in a village near the town of Las Vegas in Santa Barbará.
Pedro has been working in agriculture all his life. For forty years he has been working the land, growing vegetables such as beetroot, broccoli and carrots. The community where Pedro lives is perfect for this type of crops. Pedro has a lot of experience growing these crops and he has successfully earned a good income to support his family with the business. He sells the products for a good price at the local market.
Pedro is applying for a loan of 15,000 Lempiras from Odef. He will use it to buy fertliser, to prepare the land for a good harvest and to increase his production.
Pedro's goal is to increase his crop yield and keep maintaining his land as necessary.
