Maria Modesta's story

María is 32 years old, married, and has two children. She lives in a rural neighborhood in the town of Lepaera in the Department of Lempira.

María previously had a grocery store, but it did not do well, so she decided to focus only on agriculture. She currently cultivates coffee along with her husband. The output that is produced is sold to brokers in the area. María has requested several loans in order to maintain her crops since they provide her a source of income. At the moment, she has requested five previous loans and is asking for another one in the amount of 25,000 HNL. She plans to invest in the purchase of fertilizers and the cultivation of more coffee plants. With the care she provides to the crops, she hopes to improve her farm and her harvest. Her plan is to cultivate more plants and obtain more income so that she can improve her family’s quality of life.
