Amigos De Planes Group's story

María Santos, 40 years old, is married, has 2 children and lives with them and her husband in a village that belongs to the municipality of Intibucá. She has always worked in agriculture. She has been doing her own crops along with her husband for many years, since the area where they live is agricultural and apt for these crops. She grows potatoes, corn, beans and cabbage. She sells this produce in the local market. She has applied for various loans to keep her crops well maintained.

On this occasion, she is applying for another loan for 8,500 Lempiras to buy seeds, fertilizer, insecticide, and herbicide for good assistance for her crops and to have better harvests. Her goal is to increase the income for her family.

She belongs to the Amigos de Planes lending group, which is made up of 6 members.
