Agricultoras Del Palmar #1 Group's story

Erika, is 23 years old, and lives in a common-law marriage with her husband with whom she has 5 children and lives in a village in the municipality of Morazán, Yoro. She has worked in household tasks and three years ago decided that in order to have her own source of income, she would grow corn which she sells in the local market. She has asked for a group loan of 12,5000 Lempiras, which will go to purchase fertilizer and to pay labor costs to clean and to modernize her corn crop. Her plan is to increase the cultivation area to increase production. The group is called Productoras del Palmar #1 and is made up of three members who work in agriculture and live in the same community. The group loan is for 34,000 Lempiras, which will be used to provide assistance for their crops. In the picture, Erika is on the left, Porfirio in the middle, and Matilde on the right.
