A loan of $950 helped to replant and buy fertilizers.

Antonio's story

Antonio is 37 and lives in his own house with his wife Maria and his two children. For several years he has made a living from the planting and production of coffee as it is the trade his father taught him from a very young age. At present, he works as a farmer and spends his spare time working as a mover and in delivery service.

Antonio wants to increase his output by fertilizing his plants, and also to reforest the land by changing old plants for new ones. In order to achieve this, he is requesting a loan for the purchase of fertilizers and plants. These will help him to increase his output, which in turn will be reflected in a higher income, thereby improving his quality of life and allowing him to fulfil his dreams of helping his children to finish university.
