Fausto Alexander's story

Fausto is a 29-year-old single man, a courageous and hard-working person. He works growing coffee, work he does for 8 hours each day, he learned and inherited the business from his family. When he was very young, his father would bring him to the fields and explain the family business to him. These days, Fausto is who is at the reins of the cultivation and he is in charge of generating the resources needed to sustain his family.

Fausto works for a dream, which is to purchase his own house, since apart from maintaining the family crops, he wants to have his own and, so, to make a larger family legacy.

To make his business sustainable, expand the cultivation and create strategies to raise the price of coffee, Fausto needs a loan to purchase supplies, fertilizers, pesticides, and pay labor costs for the work of fertilizing and preparing the land and sowing.
