Javier's story

Javier is 43 years old and the father of three children who he adores. For this reason, he works enthusiastically day after day to provide them with education, food, and a good home.


Javier grows coffee, a trade that he learned as part of a family tradition. Now he is able to help his family get ahead. His crops have been affected by the rainy season, so Javier needs to invest in the purchase seeds and compost, as well as pay for irrigation so that he can improve his harvest. He does not have resources of his own, so he has come to request a loan. This business is the only source of income by which he can sustain his household.
