A loan of $2,000 helped to buy coffee seedlings and fertiliser.


Luis's story

Luis is 48 years old and, for a number of years, has been making a living sowing and harvesting coffee. He is very hard-working and enterprising and, with his work, his family's living conditions have improved considerably. Luis is applying for a loan of one million colons in order to buy coffee seedlings (small plants), and agricultural supplies such as pest-control substances, herbicides and manure. Luis plans to use this loan to improve the quality of his product and, of course, his income.
