Hector
Hector is 37 years old, and was born in San Antonio, a community located in Yali municipality, Jinotega, north of Esteli. He is single and cultivates coffee. He only studied in primary school up to 5th grade.

Hector began helping his father at the age of 14. He cleaned and harvested coffee, learning to separate good coffee beans from bad. He performed this activity afternoons, after studying in the morning. Later, he dedicated himself full time to sowing and harvesting coffee, because his father lacked the economic resources for Hector to continue his schooling. When Hector reached the age of 25, he was given 5 manzanas (3.5 hectares) of planted coffee land of his own, the fruit of his own efforts and arduous work over all those years.

Besides sowing coffee, Hector also cultivates beans. His brother helps him with planting. Hector wants his coffee to be recognized by the great coffee cooperatives of the city.

Hector is requesting a loan to plant 1 ½ manzanas (105% of a hectare) of coffee, pay laborers, and buy inputs, especially manure. He hopes to have a good crop with quality and a high yield.

Among his plans are to expand his plantings of beans and cultivate 6 manzanas (4.2 hectares) more of coffee. His immediate goal is to buy a motorcycle to provide his brother with transportation to help him oversee the crops and facilitate the cultivation and selling process.
