Ever Antonio's story
Ever is a 42 year old farmer. He has worked as the foreman on different coffee farms in the region. With the savings that he was able to gather during so many years of arduous work, he was able to get a plot of land with a house. On that land he started to grow coffee and bananas. His harvests are gathered and sold at the town market. Some time ago, with the help of a loan from a financial entity, he was able to get another small farm alongside of his house. He is now in the process of planting in order to increase his production. He will use the loan that he is requesting to buy compost, fertilizers, and pesticides and to pay for labor. This will help him to improve his crops. He will have a more productive harvest. This way he will generate a greater level of income. Little by little, Ever is building his future with his wife’s help. Time and again he advances one more step in order to be able to finish paying the debt for the farm that he got. He is improving it and increasing his crops. He is working on the structure of the house because it is in bad condition. All of this will result in the generation of progress, better living conditions, and the well-being of his family.
