Juan Felipe's story
Juan is an 18 year old farmer. He is a thriving worker who, ever since he was a child, has worked in the fields helping his father. From the age of 4 he had his own coffee crops that he harvested and sold in the town market where he lives. With the intention of strengthening his business, Juan was motivated to apply for a loan to buy supplies in bulk such as compost, seeds, fertiliser, irrigation and other items. This will allow him to improve his crops and have more variety to offer his customers, improving his sales and his earnings. Juan stated that he will keep striving to achieve his goals. He especially wants to acquire his own farm with a big plot of land where he can grow a wide variety of products and guarantee a better quality of life for his family.
