Leopoldo Alberto's story

Leopoldo is 45 years old and works side-by-side with his wife on their farm of 3.5 hectares. His whole life has been devoted to coffee growing and he has been managing his farm for two years. He also has 1.4 hectares of cacao, which have been awarded the seal of UTZ certification.

In recent years, Leopoldo’s productivity has increased 20 percent. However, he is certain that he can continue to improve his yields by properly managing his planting. On this occasion, he is requesting a loan that will allow him to establish 1.2 hectares with new cacao trees. This will allow him to responsibly manage the natural resources on his farm named “El Milagro”.

For this producer, his greatest wish is to see his four children have better opportunities for their development and financial growth. Leopoldo strives each day to help his children build their future.
