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


A loan helped to pay laborers to trim the underbrush on his parcel of coffee.


Manuel's story

Manuel studied through the third grade. He is in a relationship and has two dependent children who are in school.

Manuel has been growing coffee since he was 12 years old, having learned this trade from his parents. A 40-minute walk from his house is required to reach his parcel of coffee where he works from 4:30 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.

Manuel will use this loan to pay laborers to trim the underbrush on his parcel of coffee. He dreams of seeing his children become successful professionals in the future who are helpful members of society.
