A loan of $1,425 helped a member purchase organic fertilizer.

Los Aguacatales Group's story

Mario (pictured in the center) is the representative of the Aguatacales Group. He is 42 years old, who lives together with his children (three sons and three daughters) in Caserio Maya Cakchiquel, in the canton of El Tablón, in the province of Sololá.

He is a kind and hardworking man who works as a farmer growing corn. He has been working as a farmer for 20 years, an occupation that is very important to him as it is how he ensures he can provide for his family. He sells his surplus harvest in the local markets, which generates additional income for covering household expenses such as clothing and education for his children. The other members of the group will use this loan to purchase organic fertilizer to maintain their corn crop and thus the quality and yield of their harvest.

Mario's goal is to remodel his home and provide for the education of his children.
