A loan of $325 helped to buy coffee plants and to cleanup the plantation.

Ángel's story

When Angel was 25 years old he bought land to be able to produce coffee, as this is what his father taught him and his siblings to cultivate since they were young. Now, Angel is 61 years old, he is married to Reyna and they have 5 children who help them work on the coffee plantation doing all types of work, from cleaning to harvesting. The coffee that they produce is completely organic as they don’t use fertilizers that contain chemicals that cause harm to the environment.

Angel is requesting a loan as he needs to buy coffee plants to renovate the plantation as well as a necessary cleanup. During the last harvest he had a production of 7 tons and if he is able to carry out this renovation, he could reach a production of 10 tons in 2 years. Angel’s personal goal in the future is to expand his home so that he and his wife can live more comfortably. As well, he wants more space for when his children and grandchildren come over to visit.
