A loan of $800 helped to buy fertilizers to improve his coffee farm.

Jose Serapio's story


José, age 54, is married with three children whom he lives with in a village in the city of Gracias, Lempira. He has worked his whole life in farming of staple grains, and for almost 25 years he has worked in cultivating coffee. He sells his products in the same region. José has kept his farm in good condition with the investment of several loans. Currently he requests another for 15,000 Lempiras to buy more fertilizer and improve the farm. His idea is to continue producing coffee and have a dignified family.
