A loan of $3,150 helped a member to buy manure and fertilizer for the land where they grow crops.

Gs Buena Vista El Prado Group's story

Señor Elmo is 52 years old, the father of four children, living together with his wife. He works in banana production and sales. He has more than 10 years working in this area, which he alternates with coffee growing. This type of work has as good a market locally and nationally as well as beyond the borders of our country as Trojes is on the border with Nicaragua.

Don Elmo will use the loan to have better production of his products. This will enable him to increase his earnings to cover his family expenses and his financial contracts. With this loan he will buy manure and fertilizer for the land of his crops.

Don Elmo's dream is to give a good, professional education to his children and improve the living conditions of his family. With the help of the loan he receives this will help him reach his dreams.

The other members also work in banana production and coffee growing and they are: Rufino, Erlyn and Humberto.
