Emmanuel's story

Emmanuel is a physician but learned everything related to growing coffee since he was a little boy because his grandfather was in this business and he inherited some land that was used to grow coffee. During the last harvest, Emmanuel replanted part of his land because the plants exhausted their productive cycles and needed to be replaced. For next harvest, Emmanuel is requesting a loan because he’ll buy manure and will use part of the money to pay laborers he’s hired to pick the coffee. After harvest, he’d like to invest in equipment for his medical office and his future goal is to continue training to become a better professional since there is much competition nowadays in the work place.
