Francis Edgardo's story
Francis is a 35-year-old farmer who works specifically in coffee production, which forms his primary source of subsistence. Francis has a 6-year-old child in his care. Francis has more than 16 years of experience in coffee production which he sells through COCAFCAL, of which he is a member. With the earnings from his coffee, he covers his family's needs. He wants to be able to make a small legacy for his daughter's future. Francis is interested in entering the organic management and production program run by COCAFCAL, primarily because in this way he assures a better market for his coffee, and in addition he makes his coffee crop a more sustainable cultivation and environmentally friendly. Francis asks for a loan to be able to carry out the necessary work for conversion to organic for his coffee crop. With the earnings he gets from his coffee, Francis will have more possibilities to offer his child a quality education. A loan will help Francis have better markets for his coffee and to get more earnings which will allow his family a better quality of life, in addition to providing him an opportunity to offer better educational opportunities to his child.
