Paisaje Tzununá Group's story

Bartolo is leader of the Paisaje Tzunuma Group (He is wearing the aqua colored shirt, 4th from right to left in the photograph). He is a 40-year-old man who has 3 children, 2 boys and 1 girl. Bartolo cultivates coffee; the sowing, maintaining, and production of coffee all takes place on his parcel of land. He elected this activity for its profitability, and he has 20 years of experience in this work. In this manner, he acquires the major part of the income for his family's sustenance. Bartolo is soliciting a loan to provide working capital for cultivating additional coffee. His dream is to improve his farming and, later, to have a collection center from which he can export his coffee.
