A loan of $425 helped to buy fertilizers and seeds for cultivating basic grains and vegetables.


Alma Reina's story

Alma is 35 years old and in a common-law relationship. She has five children and lives with two of them in a rural neighborhood in the town of Gracias Lempira.

For several years, Alma has been cultivating corn, beans, and coffee. She also grows vegetables. The coffee and vegetables that she produces are sold at a local market in the area.

Doña Alma is requesting her sixth loan from ODEF in the amount of 8,000 HNL. She will buy fertilizers and seeds for cultivating basic grains and vegetables. With this investment, she hopes to cultivate an additional parcel of land so that she can generate income for her family's welfare. Her goal is to continue buying more land so that she can increase her crops, which will improve her children's quality of life and allow them to study.
