Jose Job's story

José is 51 years old. He is married and has six children. He lives in a village in the municipality of Flecha, in Santa Barbará. For 30 years José has been working in agriculture - he grows coffee, corn, beans and some vegetables. José says that with this work he has been able to support his family and provide everything that his children need. He sells the products for a good price at the local market. José is applying for a loan of 15,000 Lempira to invest in maintaining his crops. He will buy manure and fertiliser. This will help him to give his crops more attention and he will have a higher crop yield. José's goal is to continue working on his land and always to have an income to support his family.
