Dúo Trabajo Y Cosecha Group's story


Don Tranquilino is originally from Pacorral, a municipality of Tecpan, Guatemala. He is 43 years old and his four underaged children are in his care. He makes a living from agriculture, an activity which he has been doing for years.

Don Tranquilino has sown corn, beans, vegetables, and strawberries for years. Thanks to God he and his family have been able to get ahead little by little. He continues doing his work every day, thanks to the help of his wife, in order to have good harvests.

His dream is to sow a greater variety of produce in order to have greater profits and thereby be able to send his children to school to obtain a better future. He is requesting this loan in order to buy vegetable seeds for his crops.
