A loan of $1,300 helped to buy manure and pay to do the weeding.

Pablo De Jesus's story

Pablo, 39, is married and has six children. His wife sells groceries and one of his children works in a store and another one works raising cattle; his other children are students. Pablo started his business 14 years ago. He works in agriculture and raising cattle. He works his coffee plantation himself and when it’s time to cut the beans all his children and his wife help him do the work. The advantage he has is that coffee prices are good and he earns very good profits.

With the requested loan Pablo will buy manure and will be able to do the weeding. With help from this loan he will be greatly helped with manure and the coffee harvest will be larger thus producing more family income. His challenge is competition. His dreams are to have a larger, beautiful farm. This is his first FAMA loan and he expects to make his payments punctually.
