A loan of $450 helped to buy fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, manure etc.


Ruben Idelfonso's story

Ruben is 65 years old and lives in his own house with his wife and their 24-year-old son who is currently studying. Ruben has been growing and selling coffee for 45 years. He sells his produce in the different markets near his house and he has an established clientele who prefer him because of the quality of his coffee and his good prices.

Ruben is asking for a loan to buy fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, manure etc. so he can continue growing his crops, since this is his only source of income. By doing this he will be able to give his family a better quality of life.
