A loan of $4,750 helped a member to clean and tend his cardamom crops.

Flor De Monja Group's story

Bonifacio is 33 years old and is married. He was never able to receive an education, but he supports all five of his children in their studies. He makes a living as a cardamom farmer, a trade he learned while helping his parents on their farm. He now has 17 years of experience in agriculture.

As a member of the group pictured above, Bonifacio plans to use the support from this loan to clean his cardamom crops and hopefully strengthen his farming operation. He hopes to plant more crops in order to expand his farm and generate more income. The other group members also make a living farming cardamom. Though there are 19 group members pictured above, only 15 of them are directly connected to this particular loan.
