Domingo Gusman's story
Domingo Gusman is 40, a coffee grower who is married and has four children between the ages of 4 and 13 years old. Together they live in El Guineo neighborhood #2 in Patuca municipality. Domingo is not a native of Patuca. He arrived here with practically no money in his pocket and with scarcely enough to buy a small piece a land and build a small hut on it to live in. Then he looked for work as a day laborer and little by little he earned enough to buy coffee plants and thereby begin cultivating his own plot of land. Now Domingo has his own crop and fortunately it is going well because as soon as he harvests his coffee he sells it quickly. He is requesting a loan to buy molasses, fertilizer and to pay a labor force to clear his land for cultivation. This loan will help him with his coffee production and also to earn a small profit so he can continue to cover his household expenses as well as the medical costs for one of his children who has leukemia. Although these medical costs are high, his wife and he will never stop fighting to prevent their son from succumbing to this disease. Domingo’s goal is to become a large scale coffee producer and to provide a better life for his family, especially for his ill son. This is his first loan from FAMA and he is confident that with God’s help he will make his payments on time so that the organization will continue to support him with more loans.
