Trino's story

Trino is a 36 year old small businessman. He grows cacao and coffee. He lives on his farm with his wife and their 4 children, who go to a school in the community. For approximately 4 years, cacao has been the second source of income. Coffee is the first for this family.

For this cycle, he is asking for a loan to establish 1.4 hectares of cacao. for this, he will need to buy and apply agricultural materials and bio-fertilizers in a timely manner. His plants need them to continue improving the productivity of his farm. Trino is sure that with a good investment plan and the correct administration of the resources he has, he will be able to increase the agricultural products produced by his farm and with it, the income to guarantee his family a better wellbeing.
