A loan of $850 helped to buy manure and fungicide.

Alberto De Jesús's story

Alberto, 55, has worked in the fields since childhood; he learned to plant and to earn his daily bread there. After his father’s death he inherited a small parcel of land where he decided to grow coffee, an activity that’s made it possible for him to generate his family’s support. His great dream is to expand the growing acreage in order to increase income and improve his home’s quality of life.

He’s currently asking for a loan to buy manure and fungicide to produce quality crop yield with better sales options that will lead to higher income that will benefit his family.

One of his great challenges is to produce harvest despite the bad weather that sometimes threatens to destroy his crops. He wants to be able to offer his youngest son the opportunity of entering university so he can become prepared and have better opportunities.
