A loan of $1,050 helped to buy more pounds of beans to sell.

Miguel Ángel's story

Señor Miguel is 53, married, and has one 18-year-old son.

He is a hard-working man who makes a living through agriculture. For two years, he has worked buying and selling coffee and beans. His strongest business is buying and selling beans. He learned how to do this to make income for his family, and since it has been profitable for him, he has maintained his business. He used to grow corn and beans on a small farm he owns.

The grains he buys are left at his house, and he receives and weighs them, and he sells them to people that live in his community. He buys 1,000 pounds of beans and 600 pounds of coffee each week. He will invest his loan in the purchase of more beans, since this is what he is selling the most of, and he wants to have capital to buy it and to make his business grow. He has quite a bit of demand, and he is selling quickly. In the future, he hopes to have a store selling basic grains and food products so his income can grow and he can help his son, who is studying in college, become a professional.
