A loan of $500 helped to fertilize and clean his property in order to sow corn.

Juan's story

Juan is 54 years old, single and has two children. He lives in the municipality of Santa Cruz de Yojoa. He has always worked as a farmer of basic grains, and has several years of experience harvesting grains such as corn. He sells his product in the local market.

This loan request is his second cycle with ODEF, and he asks for 10,000 Lempiras. He plans to invest the loan in preparing his property for cleaning, fertilization and sowing of corn. This loan will help him keep his property in good condition in order to harvest a good yield of corn. His plan is to purchase a new farm so that he may be able to leave his children something that will help them support themselves in the future.
