Harold Armando's story

Harold is a young entrepreneur. He is 21 years old. He is just started his own business in the production of coffee. He has a small farm of 3.5 hectares of which 1.5 are coffee. His family was always in coffee agriculture for a living and he has been cultivating his own coffee for 2 years.

This youth says that "one of the main challenges that is faced in coffee cultivation is low yields, but I am sure that with good management and with the implementation of techniques such as soil analysis, I am going to overcome them".

To guarantee the maintenance of his coffee crops, Harold is requesting a loan that will allow him to assure the implementation of techniques and the required inputs for his coffee crops in order to obtain better yields and quality in this production cycle.

His knowledge in his field and the estimated profitability will allow him to grow in this activity, and continue improving the conditions of his family that is beginning to form.
