Juan's story

Juan and his wife Rosario have been coffee growers for many years. They have 2 daughters and the whole family works in this activity. Juan is a member of the “Regional Union of Huatusco”. That is where he delivers all of his product so it can be processed and exported. During the last harvest Juan's crop wasn't very good due to weather conditions. Nonetheless, he is confident this year it will go much better for him. For the harvest Juan hires laborers who help him pick the coffee and he needs a loan to pay for their services.Juan thinks that within two years he will be able to increase his production considerably because he just planted new plants a short time ago. Among Juan's goals apart from the coffee are planting sugar cane on some land he isn't using.
