Blanca Azucena's story

Blanca started to run her small 42 hectare farm 7 years ago with the help of her husband. She lives with her two sons in the North of Nicaragua in the city of Jinotega. Her farm is Fairtrade and UTZ certified which demonstrates her commitment to her community.
In the last three years, coffee production has diminished; falling prices have forced Blanca and her family to look for new agricultural opportunities. The funds she is applying for will be spent on establishing 1.4 hectares of cocoa, she needs to buy supplies including: plants, bags and pay for her colleagues.
With her families support, she has been able to maximise the resources of her farm, stabilising her domestic situation and supporting the community. This loan will allow her to increase her income and living conditions.
