A loan of $2,100 helped a member to buy agricultural supplies.

Atiocoyo Xiii Group's story

Hipolito is a 45-year-old farmer in the Department of La Libertad. He is part of the loan group called 'Atiocoyo XIII'; all members make a living by cultivating basic grains. Hipolito is a single father. He studied up to the fourth grade of primary school, as the family he belonged to had scarce financial resources and there was a need for him to work in agriculture from a very young age in order to help his family. He has six children between the ages of two and twenty who are currently studying.

Hipolito has 25 years of experience with cultivating basic grains. This business has allowed him to support his family. Hipolito requires the loan to buy agricultural supplies, which help him to maintain his business and thus generate the earnings necessary to keep supporting his children in their studies in order to see them trained as professionals so they can improve their quality of life.

In this group: Hipolito, Ana Catalina, Brigida Estela
