Hernando De Jesús's story

Hernando is a humble and hard working country person who, since he was little, began to involve himself in farm work, in the company of his parents since it was the only option they had to earn a living.

Currently, he is owner of an estate that has coffee and banana crops and fruit trees. The harvest he collects is sold in the region's market plaza and so he earns sufficient resources to pay the family expenses and feed his wife and two children.

The loan he is requesting is support to strengthen his business since, with the money, he will buy agricultural inputs like pesticides, fertilizers and larvicides that he needs to refertilize his crops and thus obtain a much more productive harvest to increase profits when selling at the market. Hernando, like all human beings, has dreams and works hard to achieve them, especially to expand his coffee crops and expand production to be able to guarantee economic stability for his family and to provide a better education to his children.
