Nuevo Amanecer Aguas Rojas Group's story

Ricardo is a 47-year-old farmer with four children. He is a member of the “Nuevo amanecer aguas rojas” [Aguas Rojas New Dawn] solidarity group together with Santos and Dimas who are engaged in the same activity.

Ricardo has been working in agriculture and coffee growing for 30 years. He began working in this business by renting land, planting half corn and half beans. With the profits from his harvests, little by little he began acquiring his own land. He now has three manzanas [approximately 5.1 acres] of property, two of which have coffee.

Ricardo is applying for a loan from Fundenuse to purchase soil amendments, fertilizers and agrochemicals to maintain his coffee crops. His goal is to farm one more manzana [1.7 acre] of coffee, to continue expanding his farm and to build a good house.
