Tano Group's story

This solidarity group is made up of four members and is coordinated by Estanilao, who is 66 years old and married. He works selling crops, and his major customers are in countries like Honduras and Costa Rica. He has completed three loan cycles with ADIM, which has allowed him to make improvements in his business that have helped him increase his profits. He is requesting this loan to buy avocado and mango crops. He hopes to improve his income.
