El Oro Group's story

Norma is 30 years old, married, has 4 children, and lives in the Nueva Frontera municipality in Santa Barbara. She has always worked in agriculture. She has been growing her own coffee, corn, and bean crops for 3 years. This activity is her family's source of income.

She decided to form a group to request a loan for 11,000 lempiras. It will be invested in the purchase of fertilizers and manure, and will also be used to clean the coffee fields, with the goal of improving her harvest and earning more money so that she can have her own home in the future.

The group is called El Oro and it is made up of 10 people who have requested a total of 97,000 lempiras in loans to fertilize, spread manure, and clean their coffee fields. They all live in the same community.
