A loan of $4,125 helped a member to clean cardamom.

El Gorrion Group's story

Marciano is married, is 35 years old, completed primary school and has three children, all of whom are studying. He makes a living by planting cardamom. He began working in this business as a child, helping his parents plant cardamom, and he has 26 years of experience so far. He also has the support of his wife.

Marciano has organized a group asking for a loan that will be utilized for cleaning cardamom. In the future he wants to have more acres of land to be able to plant cardamom. The other members of the group also make a living from planting cardamom. There are 14 members in the photograph but the loan was only given to 13 of them.

In this group: Marciano, Santos, Justo Cesario, Alejandro, Armando Raymundo, Dominga, Elena, Natividad, Juana, Clemencia Marina, Cesar Ambrocio, Victoriano, Braulio
