Los Seguidores De Cristo Los Maquengales Group's story

Marvin, 34, has worked in agriculture for 19 years; he also grows corn, beans and chia seeds. He is a member of the Los Seguidores de Cristo Los Maquengales Group along with Alexander Ariel, Marlon and Alexander E. who work in the same activity.

Marvin says he started growing corn and beans and also worked as a day laborer but he started getting ahead when he formed his own household. He inherited from his parents and worked the land and decided to plant coffee and have a small plantation. Then they decided to sell and bought another farm near the main road.

He is applying for a Fundenuse loan to buy manure and supplies for coffee maintenance. His goal is to save and pay for a plot he bought this year paying in instalments.

His dream is to improve his lifestyle and have a productive coffee plantation.

In this group: Alexander Ariel, Alexander, Marlon, Marvin
