Juan Jose's story

Juan Jose is a farmer who is 25 years old and single. He works at producing Certified Organic honey from "Apis melifera" bees. Juan Jose depends on the production of honey. He dreams of having a family, but before that he needs to work to have what is necessary for when it is time to form his own household.

Juan Jose has worked with the hives for more than 5 years, in which time he has produced honey of the highest quality which is sold through COCAFCAL. The production of honey is a new and very successful occupation in the region since the great density of plants in the region favors an abundant production. Besides, the bees contribute to the higher production of other foods and the good climatic conditions help to maintain the health of the bees.

Now, Juan Jose needs a loan to buy materials in order to do the work to maintain his hives since the boxes in poor condition can cause the bees to die. Thus, he needs to build more boxes and repair others, prepare more space and buy organic food of good quality for the hives.

A loan will help Juan Jose to improve the quality of the honey and to maintain the health of his hives. With the earnings from the honey he sells, he will help his parents and begin to build his house.
