Miguel Angel's story

Miguel, age 37, lives with his partner. They have three children and live in a small town in the municipality of Victoria, Yoro. Miguel has always worked in agriculture, sowing corn and beans, and he started cultivating coffee seven years ago. He has his own coffee farm and sells his product in wet grain form at a local community market. He is requesting a loan of 15,000 lempiras for the purchase of fertilizer and manure, and to clean up the land. His goal is to keep his farm in good condition in order to obtain a good harvest. With his earnings, he plans to buy more land to expand his production. He also wants his children to finish studying and obtain a better living standard.
