A loan of $725 helped by farming materials like organic and chemical fertilizer and pesticides.


Santos Emilio's story

Santos Emilio R. J. is 37 years old, and he lives in the San Jose neighborhood. He is married, and his wife does the housework. They have a little boy who is one month old. They are farmers, and they have been growing coffee for 18 years.

They live in a humble house where they need to make some repairs to the infrastructure. That way they will live in a decent and secure space.

One of the main problems with the harvest has been the proliferation of pests, which decreases the production of the crops. This causes financial problems for the family.

That is the reason he is requesting a loan. He will buy farming materials like organic and chemical fertilizer and pesticides. These will allow for better maintenance, which will provide the financial stability that they are looking for. They are looking for future projects that will provide better economic conditions for the family.
