A loan of $1,225 helped to buy farming supplies.


Ananías's story

Don Ananías, age 58, is a farmer with many years of experience. Every year, he is concerned about obtaining an abundant harvest that is of good quality. For this reason, he makes sure that his land is well-fertilized and that he has all the farming supplies that he needs to accomplish this.


Planting is taking place at the moment, so he is need of supplies. For this reason, he is requesting a loan of 600,000 CRC so that he can buy supplies such as compost, pesticides, herbicides, and other items.


Ananías lives with his wife and two children, who help him with any of the duties that need to be performed. They reside in San Cristóbal, a rural area that is part of the city of San José. Most of the people who live there are coffee farmers.
