Donaldo's story

Donaldo is 33 years old, married, has three children and lives in Taulabe, Comayagua. Donaldo has always worked in agriculture, he cultivates coffee and sugarcane since 10 years back. He sells his coffee wrapped in parchment at the local market. He uses the sugar cane to make sweets that he sells. During some seasons he works as a day laborer for his fellow farmers.

He has requested several loans at ODEF, this is his fifth loan and it is for 11,000 HNL. He will use it to buy compost and to pay for the clearing of his coffee and sugar cane cultivations. This will increase his production.

His plan is to expand his cultivations with another plot of coffee in order to improve his income.
