A loan of $475 helped to sow coffee plants.

Juan's story

For more than half his life, Juan has been a coffee producer. Since he was little he has accompanied his father to work on the family's coffee farms and with time he acquired the experience necessary to be able to produce his own coffee.

He is married to Alma, with whom he has two small children. Beyond coffee production, Juan also has a taxi and that is where he works the majority of the time. During the harvest time he hires trimmers to help him with the work on his farm.

For the next harvest Juan wants to plant on some recently acquired land and for that he needs a loan which he will pay back at the end of the harvest.

When he finishes the harvest, Juan would like to make some improvements to his house with the income that he obtains so that he can provide more comforts to his wife and two young children.
