A loan helped to buy environmentally friendly agricultural supplies for his coffee farm.

Nazario's story

Nazario (with his wife and daughters in the photograph) lives in northern Nicaragua. He has 4 years experience in the coffee industry, not including the years he worked as a laborer long before he had his own farm. He has a small plot with 2.25 hectares [about 5-½ acres] of cultivated coffee, which he manages under the certification process of Fair Trade and Good Agricultural Practices.

With the technical support of the association to which he is affiliated, he has created a nutritional management plan for his coffee farm for which he needs financing to buy bio-friendly agricultural supplies. This will permit him to have a good production and with it the financial conditions of his family will improve, as it would increase his production by 75%.

His goal is to continue improving his small farm and expanding his areas of coffee, to keep growing and generating more opportunities for his family.
