Ladis Orlando
Orlando is 28 years old, has two children, and is married. His wife works tending the home. Orlando was an employee of a coffee company. He planted, fertilized, and harvested the coffee beans, and that is how he learned to grow it. He began to save his wages and decided to start his own coffee farm. His father-in-law gave him two plots of land for farming coffee and, thanks to God, it has gone well for him. He has been farming coffee for four years and he works from 6:00 am until 1:00 pm. During harvest he hires 10 employees since it is a big job and the farm needs greater care. The advantage of his job is that it gives him good earnings and the difficult part is that vehicles cannot enter into his land so it is difficult to transport the crops. He will use the loan to improve his farm by buying fertilizers. One of his dreams is to be economically solvent to improve his home and add on to it. He also wants to buy more land to raise more coffee, as well as see his children graduate. This is the second loan he has received from FAMA and he was punctual with the loan payments.

Orlando tiene 28 años de edad, tiene dos hijos, es casado y su esposa se dedica a los quehaceres del hogar. Orlando era empleado de una empresa de café, el sembraba, abonaba y cortaba el café, fue asi como aprendio a cultivar cafe, de su salario empezó a ahorrar y decidió poner su propia finca de café, su suegro le regalo 2 manzanas para que cultivara el café y gracias a Dios le ha ido muy bien, desde hace 4 años se dedica a la cosecha de café, su horario de trabajo es de 6:00 am a 1:00 pm, y cuando es tiempo de la cosecha contrata 10 empleados ya que el trabajo es mayor y la finca necesita de mayor cuidado. La ventaja que tiene es que la cosecha le deja muy buenas ganancias y las dificultades que se le presentan a don José es que los vehículos no entran hasta su finca por lo que se le dificulta el traslado del producto. El préstamo que solicita don José lo necesita para mejorar su finca, en la compra de abono y fertilizantes. Uno de sus sueños es tener mayor solvencia económica para mejorar su casa y hacerla mas grande, también poder comprar mas tierras para cultivar mas café y ver graduados a sus hijos. Este es el segundo préstamo que obtiene de FAMA y ha cancelado de forma puntual sus cuotas.
