Pedro Antonio is 38 years old, married, and has three children. One of his older daughters attends school in Danlí because there aren't any secondary education centers in their village. Pedro has been growing coffee for years. He learned when he was a child, working alongside his father who taught him to work and maintain the farm.
Pedro currently has 3½ manzanas (one manzana = 1.68 acres) of coffee, growing on land which he owns. After he finishes work with his coffee plants, he works in his grocery store. The two businesses are sources of income which enable him to meet his obligations.
Pedro will use this loan to buy a solar panel. His community is located right up in the mountains and it is difficult to receive electricity: a service which is very important for the development and education of his family. Once he has repaid this loan, he plans to continue working with our institution so that he can receive the support of further loans for his business and to maintain his farm.
