Luis Enrique's story

Luis is 30 years old. He produces coffee on a small scale. He lives in the town of Patuca. He family is made up of his wife who is a housewife, and she cares for the 4 children who depend on them.

Luis began to work growing coffee 6 years ago and he learned the trade through the training his father gave him. He does not have a work schedule because there is always something that needs to be done on the farm. His big dream is to become a major coffee producer.

Luis is asking for a loan to buy baskets for harvesting the coffee, for paying the laborers for harvesting, and to pay for transport to take his harvest to market. With the help of this loan he hopes to expand his earnings and to improve the financial stability of his family. This is his first loan with FAMA and he expects to make his payments on time.
