A loan of $475 helped to buy a piece of land.


Cruz's story

Cruz is 24 years old and lives in the municipality of Nahualá in Sololá department. He has two daughters; the first is five years old and goes to the local primary school, and the second is two years old and doesn't go to school yet. He grows coffee seedlings and this generates good earnings.

When he is not working with his seedlings he works with his neighbors on their parcels of land and they pay him as a day laborer.

Cruz needs a loan in the amount of 3,500 quetzals in order to buy a piece of land. He plans to increase the size of his coffee seedling operation and buy more land so that he has somewhere to grow them.
