Deibin Said's story

Deibin is twenty-seven years old and married with one daughter. His wife works in the home. The family is very close-knit and works together as a team to accomplish their tasks. On some occasions they have had health and economic problems but have always been able to resolve them. Deibin started his own business several years ago, and has made his living through coffee production since. He learned the trade from his father at a very early age. The work schedule is varied, since during the coffee production season he works full time. There aren't start and stop times because the work is so abundant.

Deibin intends to use the loan he is requesting to buy fertilizers and pay for manual labor. It would be a very good opportunity since without it he would have to pledge the crop, as in previous years, to intermediaries who take advantage of him to buy it at a low price. Some of the problems that Deibin faces are a lack of workers in production season and the bad state of the roads, which delays transport of the product. One of his dreams is to have a well-fertilized plantation with good tools that facilitate the crop. This is the first funding that Debin has received through FAMA and he hopes to make his payments punctually.
