A loan of $600 helped buy fertilizer for the coffee plants.


Juan Jaime's story

54-year old Don Juan lives with his wife in their own home. He is a farmer and has grown coffee for ten years. When the beans are ready, he harvests them and puts them into bags as shown in the photograph. Then he sells them in different markets near his home.

Juan is an honest man with a fine credit rating. His coffee is in great demand in the area. Thanks to his job he has managed to support his household. He is now seeking a loan so he can prepare his land and buy fertilizer for the coffee plants. In this way he will be able to earn more money and provide his family with the standard of living they deserve.
