A loan of $925 helped to renew his coffee fields.

Pablo's story

Pablo has worked the land for his whole life. Since he was a young boy, his father would take him to the coffee fields so that he could help out, and over time, he learned everything to do with coffee production. The coffee that Pablo produces is organic, as he does not use fertilizers that contain chemical products. During the last harvest, he achieved the goal he had set out for himself: to produce 10 tons. For the following harvest, Pablo needs to plant new coffee plants because some of his have completed their life cycle. He is requesting a loan for this. With this renewal of his coffee fields, Pablo will be harvesting approximately 15 tons three years from now, improving his earnings. Besides producing coffee, he also has sugar cane planted on part of his land. Pablo lives with his father because he is single. After the harvest, he would like to paint his house because it's deteriorated a little and also just to pass the time.
