Andres Del Carmen
The main challenges for Andrés are pests and diseases, which he is sure will affect the maintenance of his crop. Because of this, Andrew is requesting a loan to buy supplies and pay for labor costs for the maintenance of his coffee, and thus ensure a good harvest for the 2014-2015 cycle.
The goal of Andrés is to increase his coffee area in the short term, as he is sure that coffee is a profitable item that generates currency for the country.
El principal desafío para este pequeño productor son las plagas y enfermedades que afectan el café, las cuales está seguro logrará controlar con el adecuado manejo de sus plantaciones. Para esto, Andrés está solicitando un crédito que le permita garantizar los insumos y la mano de obra necesaria para el mantenimiento de su café, y asegurar de esta forma una buena cosecha para el ciclo 2014-2015.
La meta de este productor es incrementar su área de café en un mediano plazo, ya que está seguro que el café es un rubro rentable, de otra forma, afirma que, el café no sería uno de los principales rubros que genera divisas al país.
