Jaime Leonel
Jaime lives in the community of Las Cañitas, where he makes a living in the cultivation of coffee. He is 30 years old, and is married with one daughter. His wife is a housewife. He learned how to cultivate coffee from his father from the time he was a small child. He has had his own independent business for the last 6 years. Ha works from 6 a.m. until 2 p.m. The advantages are that coffee is sold for a good price and the product is brought to his home where he lives. The inconveniences he faces are that the rain sometimes causes coffee to fall from the plants and it is sometimes difficult to find people to help pick the coffee during harvest time because labor is scarce.

The loan that Jaime has requested he needs to buy fertilizer and to be able to till the land so that it is in prime condition for the coffee harvest. One of Jamie's dreams is to have a higher production of coffee and increase the size of his farm land. This is the second loan that he has requested through FAMA. In the past he has made his payments on time.

Don Jaime es un señor de la comunidad de las cañitas, cuya actividad principal es la caficultura, tiene 30 años de edad, es casado y padre de una hija y su esposa es ama de casa. El aprendió a cultivar café porque su padre le enseño desde que era un niño, negocio al cual se dedica desde 6 años de forma independiente, el horario de trabajo es de 6:00 am hasta las 2:00 pm. Una de las ventajas es que el café esta a buen precio y que el producto lo van a traer hasta su casa de habitación. Los inconvenientes que presenta es que las lluvias ocasionan la caída del café y no encuentra corteros ya que cuando es temporada de corte hay escasa mano de obra para poder recolectar el café de la finca. El préstamo que don Jaime solicita lo necesita para comprar abono y poder chapear la tierra, para dejarla en mejores condiciones cuando sea la cosecha del café. Uno de los sueños de don Eusebio es tener más producción de café y hacer crecer mas la finca. Este es el segundo crédito que solicita en FAMA y hasta el momento ha cancelado sus cuotas de forma puntual.
