A loan of $800 helped to buy agricultural supplies.

Manuel José's story

Manuel, 39, is single and has no children yet. From a very young age he started to work in the fields helping his father and uncles pick coffee. Thanks to this, he now works growing coffee, beans, corn and vegetables on a small lot he inherited from his father when he died. When he sells his crops he earns income for daily sustenance.

Manuel is a man with drive; he’s patient and hardworking. Despite the difficulties that have arisen in his life he always seeks options that will allow him to continue forward. This is what motivated him to request a loan to buy agricultural supplies (manure, fertilizer, pesticide, fungicide) to provide crop care so he can produce excellent quality products to sell more easily in the market thus earning income and continue advancing toward reaching his dreams, especially to improve his quality of life and to have the opportunity of forming a family and having children.
