A loan of $525 helped to buy compost for his land.


Oscar Mario's story

Oscar is a veteran coffee grower who has been in his profession since his youth. He finds it difficult to continue working in this admired profession and one obstacle is the high cost of fertilizers. For this reason Oscar is requesting a loan. He will invest the entire amount in the purchase of compost for his land, which allows him to feed his family that consists of his wife and three children who have not reached adulthood.

Oscar’s main wish is to expand his crops so that he can achieve greater production and improve his family’s quality of life. He also wants to produce coffee beans so that everyone can enjoy an exquisite cup of coffee each day.
