Tzucubal, Nahualá Iii Group’s story

Like in every other year, Juan is looking to cultivate and improve his crops. Thanks to his previous loan, he was able to buy fertilizer and to pay laborers to maintain the crops in his cornfield. Fortunately, he obtained a good harvest, part of which was for his family’s consumption and the other part was sold so he could pay his family’s expenses with his profits.

Juan, together with his group, is requesting a new loan to buy fertilizers and to pay laborers to help cultivate his corn and obtain a good harvest.

Juan has all of his hopes placed on this loan to allow him to harvest his crops and to improve his family’s quality of life.
