A loan of $325 helped purchase fertilizers and coffee bean plants.

Juan's story

Juan is 42 years old and lives with his wife and children. He has been a farmer for the past 30 years and has been able to support his family. According to Juan, the harvest is the most enjoyable because it is less tedious and more relaxing. However, the crops require much work during the seasons and to produce them in large quantities for wholesale distribution is much more profitable. The difficulty is planting the crops and taking care of them in the first years of production to ensure high quality fruit. This is his first loan with MFP. Juan will invest it in the purchase of fertilizers and coffee bean plants, a crop that he will start producing.
