Santiago's story

Santiago is 42 years old, married, and has four children. He and his family live in a neighborhood in the town of Lempira.

Santiago has devoted the past several years to growing his own coffee. He produces coffee in parchment, both moist and dried, and sells his product at the local market. The loan he is requesting is his fifth one and is in the amount of 28,000 HNL. He will use the money to buy fertilizers and compost so that he can maintain a productive farm full of coffee plants. Santiago hopes to improve production and grow his family’s income each year. His goals include planting more coffee and providing for his children’s education.
