Carmen's story

Carmen is 54 years old and lives in San Antonio de la Balsa, a rural community in San Ignacio, Cajamarca, Peru. He has been working as a coffee grower for several years and belongs to Cenfrocafé, an organic and free-trade co-op.

Carmen will use this loan to invest in pruning and weeding his coffee plantation and to buy organic fertilizer. This will allow him to increase production in future harvests and improve the quality of his crops, which in turn will help his business expand and generate more income so that he can give his family a good quality of life.
