Jose Benjamin's story

José is 53 years old, married, and has two children. He lives in a town in the municipality of Santa Bárbara. José used to sell clothing for a living, but he has been growing corn, beans, and coffee for 19 years now. These businesses are his source of income for his family. The loan he is requesting is for 20,000 lempiras and he will invest it in fertilizers and supplies to help his farm and produce a good harvest. His goal is to keep his children in school and have a stable life.
