Maria Telesfora's story

Maria is 54-years-old. She is a single mother with 5 children. She lives in a village in the municipality of Gracias, Lempira with her mother and her children. Her entire life she has been dedicated to agriculture and the cultivation of coffee and basic grains. She has also created clay pottery.

Her agricultural activities have been the source income that supports her family. In order to keep it active, she is requesting a loan from ODEF to purchase manure and insecticides. This way she can fertilize and fumigate her plot of coffee crops in order to have a better yield. Her plan is to continue improving the quality of her crops and improve the quality of life for her family.
