Feliz
Feliz, 75, is a native of the community El Coyolar, Yali, located on the outskirts of Estelí. As a farmer, he grows coffee beans. He is married and a father of five children who are all adults. Since a very young age, he has worked in the field. Because he was born into a situation of poverty, he could not continue studying; he only learned the basics of putting down his initials as a signature. He devotes himself specifically to the coffee industry since the area in which he lives is appropriate and fertile for growing organic coffee beans.

His humble hands begin their labor from the early hours of the morning and he returns during the evenings after a long day in the field. A machete and rubber boots are part of his daily uniform for when he goes out to sow a better life for his family. He does some of his field activities together with his children who help him with the sowing and selling of the product.

He is requesting this loan to pay for labor and to buy manure and fertilizers to provide better land maintenance for about 3.5 acres of coffee trees. He hopes to have a good harvest and to manage selling it at a good price that will allow him to cover production costs, and at the same time, to increase his cultivated land.
