A loan of $800 helped to buy fertilizers and pay for workers to build coffee nurseries for planting.

Rohel Francisco's story

Rohel, 30, is married, has two children and lives in a village in the community of Gracias Lempira. He has always worked in agriculture, before he bought and sold cows and pigs. But for the last ten years he has worked cultivated coffee.

He sells the coffee as beans in the local market in the area. He is requesting his second cycle of loans for 15,000 Lempiras, which he will invest in the purchase of fertilizers, supplies and to pay for workers to make new coffee nurseries for planting. With this investment, he hopes to increase his crops and improve his future production of coffee. His goal is to expand his coffee crops to support the well-being of his family.
