This loan is part of PAC's effort to help farmers expand their existing crop yields and increase their incomes. Coffee production loans help farmers increase their crop yields by enabling them pay to clean, prune, fertilize, and conserve their fields, deliver water, and replant trees needed to shade coffee plants. Farmers working with PAC also receive technical assistance and commercial services, as well as access to Fair Trade and organic certifications and international markets.
About PACPAC (Association for People in Community Action) is a community development organization in Nicaragua that offers clients loans, technical assistance and access to markets. Founded in 1996, it’s a joint initiative between World Relief Nicaragua and local farmers.
