A loan of $400 helps to buy soil amendments and fertilizer.


Aldemar De Jesus's story

Aldemar is single in the town of Caicedo.

He was born into a humble family of farmers who found an alternative in life in farm labor, and that was where he learned everything he knows today about managing crops and raising animals. He's 47 years old and has a coffee crop.

Wanting to strengthen his trade, he's requesting the support of a loan to buy soil amendments and fertilizer. That way he'll be able to expand his production and sell more, which will result in increasing his income.

Aldemar dreams of expanding his business with more crops.
