A loan of $600 helped to buy fertilizer to maintain his coffee crop.


Jacobo's story

Jacobo, 36, is married and lives with his wife and three children in the city of Nuevo Celilac, Santa Bárbara. For nine years, he has been growing coffee and basic grains in small quantities on his own land for consumption and sale. He sells his coffee crop in parchment bags at the local market. He has previously applied for several crop loans, which have allowed his business to slowly grow. Crop sales are his source of income to support his family. This will be his sixth loan cycle, and he will use the money to buy fertilizer to improve his coffee plantings and produce a good harvest. His goal is to slowly add more land and to give his family what it needs in terms of food, health care, education, and housing.
