Alfonso's story

Alfonso, 59, is married, has two children, and lives in Siguatepeque, Comayagua. He has farmed all his life, and he has been growing coffee for 16 years. He sells his production, parchment coffee and coffee cherries, in the local market. He has had several loans with the institution to maintain his crops. He has now applied for a loan of 10,000 lempiras to plant coffee and to pay for supplies and labor. His goal is to plant 1 1/2 manzanas of coffee to increase his family's income.
