Agricultural Loans Support Families and Improve Livelihoods

September 5, 2023

Rigoberto and Odilia Castro, agricultural producers in Guatemala, saw an improvement in their business and the lives of their children with a loan they obtained from our partner Federación Nacional de Cooperativas de Ahorro y Crédito (MICOOPE) as part of the USDA-funded Food for Progress program. 

Whether it’s sending children to school or having the necessary resources to care for them during times of illness, the loans play a vital role in uplifting both families and communities. Watch the video to learn about the significance the program has on families in rural Guatemala.
