Jose Santos's story

Jose Santos is 38 years old and has been married for 14 years. He has five children (ages 9 months, 5, 7, 11, and 12 years). Three of them are in school. He lives in the neighborhood of Agua Sarca de San Jose, Lempira.

Sr. Jose has been growing coffee and basic crops (corn, beans, and bananas) for five years. His farm consists of one plot of land that he inherited from his father. This business is his source of income. At the moment, his coffee crop is generating good earnings. He works all day, every day.

The loan he is requesting will be used to better maintain his farm by clearing the land and applying herbicides so that he can achieve a good product and obtain good profits. With his income, Jose wants to see his children finish their studies.
