A loan of $850 helped to buy fertilizers to fertilize coffee crops.

José Santos's story

José is 38 years old and is in a civil union with his wife. He has two children who are 12 and 14 years old. He lives the community of Cedral in the Las Vegas municipality of Santa Barbara.

José Has made his living in agriculture since childhood. He has 1 manzana of land (about 1.7 acres) planted with coffee. He sells the coffee as wet pergamino. Once he sells it he makes a good profit as the coffee is of excellent quality because he grows it at an altitude higher than 1600 m.a.s.l. (meters above sea level).

Currently he is requesting a loan in the amount of 16,000 Lempiras to buy fertilizers to fertilize the coffee and have better production.

In the future he hopes to increase his crops and production.
