A loan of $3,275 helped buy the necessary inputs to improve the nutrition of his coffee plantation.


Jose Esteban's story

Jose, a 31-year-old, has been a coffee producer and farmer for the last 10 years. He is the father of three children, who he raises with his wife, and to whom he passes on his devotion and dedication to coffee growing; but he also impresses upon them the importance of studying to earn an education that will help them develop in the workplace.

Having followed the technical advice he gets from the technical team that supports him, Jose has managed to increase his harvest by up to 20% from year to year.

His goal is to continue the improvements, so for this cycle he is requesting a loan to purchase the necessary inputs to improve the nutrition of his coffee plants, and advance towards the goal he has set.

His dream is to have a modern first-world coffee farm, and achieve the high quality that would allow him to break into the gourmet-drink market.
