A loan of $950 helped to re-plant his coffee farm.

Rogelio's story

Rogelio has worked producing coffee for twelve years. He's also responsible for selling coffee in a coffee processing plant. He's married and has four children, whom he has taught the necessary knowledge so that one day they, too, can do the same work. In the last harvest Rogelio produced twelve tons of organic coffee, which he delivered in its entirety to the Unión Regional de Huatusco to be processed and exported.

He would like to increase his production, and to make this possible he needs to plant new coffee plants because some of the ones he has already have finished their life cycle. To do this he needs a loan, which he'll repay at the end of the next harvest.

In the future Rogelio would like to be able to acquire more land to grow coffee. Among his personal goals is for his children to get a college education.
