Francisco's story

Francisco is 60 years old and married. He has nine children and lives in a village in the municipality of Gracias Lempira together with his wife and four of his children. He has always worked in agriculture, focusing on the commercialization of basic grains and livestock. He has about 26 years of experience cultivating coffee and sells his crops in local markets. He is requesting his second loan and plans to use it to purchase fertilizers and other supplies, and pay for labor to prepare his coffee crop. With this investment he hopes to expand his crops and achieve better coffee production. His plan is to continue this line of work to be able to help his younger children start their own crops.
