Santos Anibal


A loan of $800 helped to buy chemical and natural fertilizers.


Santos Anibal's story

Santos, age 42, is married and has six children. His wife devotes herself to the household chores. Three of his children devote themselves to growing coffee and farming. They live in the Plan de Roasrio community in Trojes.

Santos started working with his father growing coffee, corn, and beans. He currently devotes himself to growing coffee. He works together with his children. His work schedule is from 6:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. When it is harvest time he does not have a schedule for starting or ending work because of the excessive work that there is on the coffee farm.

The advantage that Santos has is the price of coffee is very good, and it produces good income. The disadvantage is that during the winter, due to the rain, the coffee beans fall off, and this brings losses.

Santos needs the loan that he is requesting to buy chemical and natural fertilizers and to clear the fields. The loan will help him a lot because it will keep his coffee farm in good condition. His crops will avoid pest infestation, and that way he will have a better harvest.

One of his goals is to make his business grow and to have financial stability. Santos has been a client of FAMA for various cycles. He has made his payments punctually.
