José is 39 years old, married, and has two children. He lives in the Protección municipality in Santa Barbara. For 25 years José has made a living in agriculture, growing coffee, corn, and beans. He sells his crops in the local area. José is applying for a loan of 8000 Lempira that he will invest in buying supplies and fertilisers for the coffee crops. With these items he will have better harvests and higher profits. José's aim is to improve his family's standard of living.
