At present, he has about two thirds of an acre for the coffee crop. This is his family's source of income. With his wife, he has been able to get ahead with their hard work and enthusiasm. Adán Aurelio also sells coffee canes during the planting season. He does his work in the fields with relatives who live with hi, so the income he generates is very profitable.

Adan will use the loan to buy a solar panel. Living in a remote mountain community makes it difficult to be able to count on electric energy. Thanks to this solar plant, he will be able to improve his family's quality of life.
