A loan of $500 helped to buy manure to fertilise his coffee, corn and bean crops.


Evelio's story

Don Evelio is 49 years old, married with one son and lives with his family in a village in Gracias, Lempira. He has always worked in agriculture together with his family. For 10 years, he has grown his own corn, bean and coffee crops. He sells his harvests to a go-between and local markets. To keep his property in good condition, improve his harvest and income, he has requested a second loan which he will use to buy manure to fertilise his coffee, corn and bean crops. He plans to acquire more land to expand his crops and improve his family's quality of life.
