A loan of $725 helped to buy fertilizer, manure, cover labor costs and to buy better seeds to cultivate corn.


Ines's story

Ines is 56 years old, married, and has six children. He lives with his wife and three of his children in a small village located in the municipality of Morazán Yoro. Ines has produced corn and other crops for about 30 years. Since he was young, he worked with his father and now he has his own farm. He sells the corn than he grows in the local market.

Including the current request, this will be his fifth loan cycle. It is for 15,000 lempiras and he will use it to buy fertilizer, manure, cover labor costs and to buy better seeds for the cultivation of corn. With this investment, he will have a better harvest and earn higher profits. His goal is to continue increasing his crops to improve production and profits in order to improve his family's quality of life.
