Mario's story

Mario is 25 years old, single, and lives with his parents in a small village in the municipality of Flores, Lempira. He has always made a living as a farmer. Five years ago, he began growing coffee, which he sells to agents in the area. In order to improve his harvests, he has requested a loan of 15,000 lempiras to buy fertiliser and compost for his farm and plant more coffee plants. In this way, he will be able to expand his crop to increase his earnings and improve his quality of life.
