Los Hermanos Gomez Group's story

José is 30 years old, he is married with one child, and he lives in a community in Intibucá. He has worked in agriculture all his life, growing corn, beans, and potatoes. He has been growing and selling potatoes for ten years. He sells the potatoes in the markets within the surrounding areas, where they sell for a better price.

He is in a group, and he is seeking a loan of 12,000 Lempiras, with which he will purchase certified potato seed in order to achieve better yield and quality. His goal is to increase the level of production.

The group is called Los Hermanos Gómez [The Gómez Brothers], and it comprises five members who work in agriculture and live in the same community. They have requested a group loan of 51,000 Lempiras in order to purchase potato seed.
