Amelio's story

Amelio lives in the populated center of Francisco Bolognesi, a community of coffee growers one hour from San Ignacio, Peru. Amelio, 53 years old, lives with his wife and two children who are minors. He maintains his own 2.00 hectare plot of coffee of excellent quality. Since he was a boy, his parents taught him the agricultural tasks. He has dreams of increasing his coffee production, generating more income for his family, and giving his young children an education.

A loan to Amelio will give him the opportunity to improve his business, increasing his production with the fertilization and improving the quality of the coffee. With the money, he will invest in the purchase of soil amendments and pay the laborers for the harvest, which he will sell in his local cooperative.
