A loan of $1,250 helped to buy manure, fertilizer, and to cover labor costs.


Jose Manuel's story

José, 47 years old, is a humble farmer who sows and harvests coffee. He is grateful for the opportunity provided by his first loan. He feels very grateful because he was able to maintain his crop by buying supplies and fertilizers, and paying his workforce to plant coffee. He is applying for his second loan to continue investing in the same purchase of supplies and fertilizers, and to cover labor costs. His wish is to increase the area of his organic coffee crop so that it generates better yields for him in the harvest y to take maximum advantage of the fertile ground that is optimal for this type of farming.
