A loan of $1,550 helped to buy fertilisers, pesticides and to pay for labour.


Iván De Jesús's story

Iván is 37 years old. He lives on a farm in the town of Betulia, Antioquia with his wife and three children, who are minors. His hard work and dedication have enabled him to buy a piece land from his father-in-law where he has sown coffee. Thanks to this activity he can support his family, feed his children and provide them with an education.

His greatest dream is to have his own farm and to increase the number of crops he sows. However, he is conscious that this dream is one he will build on day by day with sacrifice and dedication.

At present he is requesting a loan which he will use to invest in the purchase of fertilisers, pesticides and to pay for the labour provided by his workers. With this he will be able to obtain a better quality crop and give his family a better quality of life.
