A loan helped to buy covers, tomato plants, organic fertilizers, bags, drip irrigation, and other materials to build a greenhouse to produce organic tomatoes.

Marin Fresbindo's story

In addition to wanting to certify his farm Marin also wants to diversify his income so he does not depend on only one gateway to money and thus have more opportunities. It is for that reason that Marin wants to start building a greenhouse to produce organic tomatoes selling though the means of Cocafcal which is a partner.

Tomato cultivation in greenhouses is very popular in the region for quality tomatoes that are environmentally friendly.

Marin is asking for a loan to start building a greenhouse and thus have more than one source of income for his family.

A loan will help Marin to give his family a better quality of life and his children will have more opportunities.
