Roger's story

Roger lives in the small village of Villa Rica, in the district of San José de Lourdes, province of San Ignacio, Cajamarca in Peru. Roger is 28 years old, lives with his parents and his 2 sisters and maintains his own 2 hectare plot of coffee, selling quality coffee to a local co-operative. Since he was a child, his parents taught him farm work. He dreams of increasing his coffee production and, at the same time, finishing his professional education degree and improving the living conditions for his family.

A loan to Roger will give him the opportunity to improve his quality of life by increasing his production with the fertiliser, and finishing his professional degree opening doors to new opportunities. With the money earned from the products of his crops, he will save to be able to buy land to build his house in the town of San Ignacio.
