Union Y Esfuerzo Group's story

Pablo is 30 years old, married, and has 2 children. He lives in the town of Intibucá. He has always worked in agriculture as a laborer. For 4 years, he has been growing his own potatoes, lettuce, cauliflower, broccoli, and carrots. He sells this produce in the local market. Pablo is requesting a loan as part of a group with the intention of buying seed potatoes to sow. His goal is to be able to build a house and enable his children to get an education.
The group is called Unión y Esfuerzo (Union and Effort) and has 4 members who work in agriculture and live in the same community. The total loan is for $1,425, which they will use to buy seed potatoes so they can have a source of income.
