A loan of $475 helped to buy fertilizer for a productive harvest.

Eustolio's story

Eustolio, 52, learned how to work in the fields alongside his father and brothers who are coffee growers when he was still a little boy. He’s married to Sofía for more than 30 years and has three married children and two single children who are still in school but who also help with the coffee growing because this is a family business. Eustolio is one of the growers who is concerned about the quality of his coffee from the very beginning of the process since he himself has a nursery where he produces the plants that he plants and also sells to other growers in the region. Eustolio needs to buy fertilizer for the next harvest to maintain the production he’s had in previous years and needs a loan to do so, which he will repay at the end of the harvest season. Eustolio would like to repair the roof on his house because it leaks and also the kitchen because it’s currently wood.
