A loan of $900 helped to clean his land and prepare it for planting.

José Rómulo's story

José Romulo learned to work with coffee by first working as a day worker. He did that until, as time passed, he was able to save money and buy his own land. He did this 38 years ago in order to become a coffee producer.

José Romulo now produces ten tons of organic coffee annually. He sells it to the Unión Regional de Huatusco to be exported. One of the concerns that he now has is performing all of the most technical processes involved with coffee. This way he would be able to take better advantage of the resources he has. He would also manage better conservation of the environment and his land.

In order to begin to carry out this action he needs to do cleaning work and to prepare part of his farm. He needs a loan to do this. In the future José Romulo would like to be able to expand his house and built another one for his children. In a few years he would also like to be able to have good assets for when he has to retire.
