Jose's story

José is married and lives with his wife and children. His family is made up of four people. José's economic activity is agriculture with a focus on cultivating coffee. He acquired this knowledge from his father and opened his business about 36 years ago. José's work schedule is from 8 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon. Normally, he doesn't need any help. He is well known in the area for his type of business, which works as an advantage to keep him in sales.

José is in need of financial aid to buy insecticides, foliar, and to pay young men to help him plant coffee in a short amount time. He expects to produce more coffee and to generate a greater income, which he will use to cover the basic necessities of those whom he cares about.

His aspirations are to have a more diversified business and to maintain his economic stability.
