Vicente, age 34, is married and has a five month old son. He lives in the Níspero municipality in Santa Bárbara.
Vincente’s source of income is a coffee farm. Additionally, he grows basic grains like beans for consumption and to sell. His father gave him an inheritance of four “manzanas” (one 'manzana' = 1.68 acres) of land where he has his own crops. His motivation has been the fact that coffee is giving him very good income. He has been cultivating this farm for ten years. However, he has more than that in years of experience because, ever since he was very little, he has worked in agriculture with his father.
His goals are for his farm to be maintained, to have a good production at harvest, to be able to use the income to buy more land for crops, and to repair his home.
This is his first loan. He will use it to weed and care for his coffee farm and his basic grains crops.
