A loan of $775 helped to buy compost and weed his coffee plantation.


José Francisco's story

José Francisco lives in the hamlet of Urranche, a community of coffee growers 40 minutes from San Ignacio, Peru. José Francisco is 55 years old, single, and without children. He supports himself from his own parcel of 1.5 hectares of coffee of excellent quality. His parents taught him agricultural work since he was a child. He has dreams of increasing his production of coffee and generating more income for his family unit.

A loan to José Francisco will give him the opportunity to improve his business, increasing his production with the application of compost and improving the quality of his coffee.

This is his first loan with Norandino, and he feels happy, since in this way he will better plan his activities and his investments.
