A loan of $775 helped buy fertilizer and manure for crop maintenance.

Gonzalo's story

Gonzalo is 46 years old, married, and has 3 children. He lives in a village of De la Flecha municipality in Santa Barbara. For some 30 years now, Gonzalo has been dedicated to working in agriculture, cultivating coffee, corn, and beans. Gonzalo tells us that with this activity, he has been able to maintain his family, providing everything necessary for his children. His produce is sold in the local market at a good price.

Gonzalo is soliciting his 3rd loan of 15,000 lempiras to invest in crop maintenance, purchasing manure and fertilizers. This will help him provide better assistance and achieve higher production.

His goal is to continue working and, with the earnings he obtains, Gonzalo hopes to be able to buy a car for use in the business.
