A loan of $525 helped to buy manure.

Wilson Rene's story

Wilson is 40 years old, married, and has six children. His wife makes a living in domestic work. He and his family live in the community of Las Cañitas, in the department of Olancho.

Ten years ago Wilson began planting coffee with support from his parents who gave him the land to plant coffee, corn, and beans. He currently makes his living harvesting basic grains. He works alone and his work day lasts from 6:00am to 1:00pm. During the harvest season he works full time. Due to the quantity of work there is, he needs to find employees because he cannot do it alone. The advantage is that he enjoys good coffee bean production even though he is paid a low price for his product.

Wilson needs the loan he is requesting to invest in the purchase of manure, to clear the land, and to improve the farm. With the help of this loan he will be able to improve his farm and have a better income which will help him support his family. His goal is to be able to have more plots of land to grow coffee and to see his children graduate. This is the second loan he has received from FAMA and he has made his payments on time.
