Manuel Tiberio's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to pay the harvesters, and to purchase soil amendments and a sprayer.

Manuel Tiberio's story

Manuel is an enterprising man, 32 years old, who works growing coffee. He has a lovely family and lives in the municipality of Supia, a post-conflict zone, hit very hard by the violence and high rates of poverty. For this reason, the loan is of greater risk.

Manuel wants to ask for a loan to pay the harvesters, and to purchase soil amendments and a sprayer, so to increase his production, improve sales and have the opportunity to get ahead and improve his beloved family's living conditions.

With your financial support, a person of low income will have better growth opportunities and will show that, with effort, commitment, and marked determination, he will be able to achieve his dreams and be successful despite the very difficult complications borne by the sector where he lives.
