Clemente Antonio
Clemente is a native of the district of San Antonio, on the outskirts of Estelí. He is the father of two children, ages 20 and 22. His wife works as a teacher in a primary school. He began his business of planting coffee five years ago, since before that he planted corn and beans. But on noticing that the lands were suitable for growing coffee, he decided to establish an area of about 1.75 acres with a little money that he obtained from the sale of corn and beans. That is how he began this business, and little by little he has expanded his area of cultivation. The lands that he uses are his own. He would like to sell his product to other buyers of coffee who would pay him a better price for the product.

The expectations that he has from his business are to continue expanding the planting area and improving the production.

He is applying for the loan to buy fertilizers and pesticides and pay for labor to maintain about 7 acres of coffee in production. He expects that this loan will help him improve the yield of his harvests and obtain better income to improve the economic conditions of his family and the community, since he would also provide a source of employment to the people of his community. His future plans are to improve his house and his farm and buy materials and tools. His next goals are to increase his production in the agricultural cycle that is about to begin.
