Por Un Futuro Mejor Group's story

Efraín is 58 years old. He is married and has four children, and he lives in San Pedro Sula. He has been a farmer his whole life. He grows coffee, radishes, cilantro, carrots, corn, beans, and other crops. He sells his products at the local market and so earns an income. He is requesting a loan of 10,000 lempiras as part of a group loan. He will use it to fertilize and improve his coffee farm so his crop will grow better. That way, his family will have a better life and his children will be able to go to school. The group is called Por un Futuro Mejor (For a Better Future). It has eight members who live in the same community and are all farmers. Each one is requesting 10,000 lempiras, making the loan 80,000 lempiras in total.
