A loan of $475 helped to buy manure and fertilizers.

Jorge Luis's story

Jorge learned from his father how to work the land. He worked as a day laborer on the coffee plantations starting when he was very young, and thanks to his work there, he now has his own land where he plants coffee. This provides him and his family, composed of 3 children, with the daily bread.

He also works in the construction business as an assistant during the week-ends, and his children help him with the crop so that it is well cared for and of good quality to then get a good harvest.

To preserve his crops, he needs fertilizers and manure to protect them from blight, so that once harvested he can sell coffee at a good price and increase his income.
