Renelmo's story

Renelmo, 45 years old, lives in the village of Cruz de Chalpón, San Ignacio, Peru, with his wife and 5 school-aged children. He wants the loan to invest it in his coffee farm, where he will install new areas of cultivation, allowing him to increase his production and so, his income, selling through his cooperative Cenfrocafe, which sells organic and fair trade coffee.

His wife works raising small animals, which are sold in the market in San Ignacio, getting income in the months when there is no coffee harvest, to be able to cover their monthly expenses.

Renelmo grows coffee as his primary business but also works in construction.

Renelmo is a returning borrower with Coopac Norandino and has paid off his loans to date.
