A loan of $1,850 helped to pay the wages of his coffee pickers and the cost of transporting the coffee.

Rafael's story

Rafael’s family has been producing coffee for several generations. Even though he wanted to become a lawyer, Rafael also wished to continue the family tradition. He currently produces approximately 10 tons of coffee per year and delivers his harvested crop to “Unión Regional de Huatusco”, an association that he joined several years ago.

For the next harvest, Rafael needs a loan so that he can pay the coffee pickers that he has hired. In addition, he will pay the cost of transporting his coffee. The loan will be repaid at the end of the harvest. With the profits that he will earn, Rafael would like to make a few modifications to his house and complete a few details that need to be finished.
