A loan of $1,375 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Rubén's story

For several generations, Ruben’s family has made their living in coffee production. It was Ruben’s father that taught him everything he needed to carry out this activity. Due to his great passion for coffee and everything related to the countryside, Ruben earned his degree in agronomy. This is why Ruben has all the experience and knowledge necessary to be able to grow his coffee production which currently consists of 5 tons of organic coffee annually. This means he does not use chemical fertilizers which greatly benefits the environment.

Ruben needs this loan to buy organic fertilizer and clean his farm. Ruben would like to purchase more land to sow more coffee seeds. He would also like to be able to leave his children an inheritance, which along with a good education, is the basis for a better future.
