A loan helped to buy fertilizers and foliar treatments for his coffee farm.

Elvin's story

Elvin has been a coffee farmer for 24 years. His farms is located where he lives. He has two manzanas of harvestable coffee, and has more available land to continue planting. He sold the harvest he obtained to the owners of the coffee processing plant who live in his town.

He seeks a loan to buy fertilizers and foliar treatments in order to provide maintenance to his farm and obtain a greater output in his next harvest. With the earnings he makes he wants to start growing bananas to obtain more income.

This loan is special because:

It has a below-market interest rate and is repaid at harvest, when farmers can more easily repay.
