Sr. Luís Ramón is 41 years of age. He is married, and his wife and he live with their children in Las Vegas de Guambuco Danlí.
For 10 years, Luís has been involved in coffee growing. He and his wife have succeeded in getting ahead. They are very enterprising people with a desire to excel. They have 5 “manzanas” (about 8.5 acres) of coffee plants that is their source of annual income. With these earnings they cover their family expenses and meet their commitments.
Luís will use the loan to purchase a solar panel. Since they are located in a mountain community it is difficult to be able to have electric service, which is very important for the development and education of the people.
