A loan of $1,050 helped to plant and for maintenance of his coffee farm.

Antonio's story

Antonio, age 58, has been married for 30 years and has three children, ages 22, 25, and 28. He lives in Los Caminos, Santa Cruz de Yojoa.

Antontio has been a farmer ever since he was little. He has devoted himself to his own coffee production for 25 years. He produces wet parchment coffee. He has an area of five “manzanas” (a manzana is 7,000 square meters) of land.

He started with help from the Cooperación Española. He has been very motivated by the good price at the market, and it generates good income.

The loan he is requesting is for planting and maintenance on his coffee farm. Giving it good care will improve the production, and then he will be able to give his family a better quality of life.
