El Sinai Group's story

Lucia, is 43 years old, married, has three children, and lives in a village in the municipality of San Rafael, Lempira. She is a member El Sinai Group, which is made up of 7 members. For 12 years, she has made a living with agricultural activities such as maize, beans and coffee. She has decided to request 4,000 Lempiras for fertilizer and washing her plot of coffee and basic grains. Her plan is to do better every year and that their children can go to school. All of the group members live in the same community and are dedicated to the same line of work.

In the photo the members are identified as follows: On the left is Lucia, followed by Jose Mario, María Ofelia, Maria Luciana, Teodora, María de la Paz and Nicolasa who could not be in the picture.

The total loan amount of 35,000 Lempiras will be invested in the maintenance of their crops in order to improve production and income.

The whole group benefited from a project implemented by ODEF where they received training and productive assets, and that helped them gain access to loans. They are currently requesting the third cycle of loans to keep improving production and improve the quality of life of their families.
