Gs. Unidos De La Laguna Group's story

Jose, 56 years old, lives with his wife and also has his own house. He has worked for some years in coffee growing and growing taro which has allowed him to get ahead since he is a very responsible and determined person.

Jose is asking for the loan to plant coffee and to purchase organic manure, insecticide, and fertilizers, so to be able to get more income and improve his living conditions.

He asked for this loan as a group loan with Erwin and Milton, who also work growing coffee and growing taro.
