A loan of $700 helped buy plants (that replace the old ones), fertilizer and pay day workers who help him improve the harvest.

Fidel's story

Fidel lives in his own house with his five children. He’s a coffee producer. When he was young, his father taught him everything about coffee production, including the care needed to grow it. He bought his parcels of land after he was married and started to work them with his wife, putting into practice all of the recommendations and advice his father gave him with regard to taking care of and producing coffee. Fidel is requesting a loan to buy plants that replace the old ones that don’t yield anymore, fertilizers that help increase the harvest and also to pay day workers who help him clear his parcels and maintain them in perfect condition for the harvest season. By realizing all of these activities in his parcels of land, he’ll be able to increase production each harvest and at the same time obtain bigger economic gains that will help him support his children’s studies and improve his and his family’s quality of life.
