Alianza Emprendedora 2 Group's story

Efraín, 60, is married and has four children. He lives with his wife and one of their children in the town of Yoro. All of his life he has been a farmer, growing corn and beans. He sells his produce at the local market in the area. This will be his 16th loan through ODEF and with the communal bank; and it is for the amount of 7,000 HNL. He will use the loan to buy seeds to plant corn and beans. His plan is to earn enough of his own money to continue working and help his children finish their education.

The communal bank "Alianza Emprendedora 2" is comprised of eight members who live in the same community and are farmers. The group loan for 59,000 HNL will be used to buy fertilizers and seeds to plant corn and beans to sell.
