Santos Gilberto's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy biofertilisers, calcium, zinc and other items to provide maintenance on 1.05 hectares of coffee.

Santos Gilberto's story

Santos is a small coffee-grower in a remote community in the north central zone of Nicaragua. On his small farm he provides temporary work to people in his community. His small farm is 2.81 hectares, run under Fairtrade certification criteria.

For this cycle, he has designed a nutritional improvement plan for 1.05 hectares of coffee. The funds requested will be invested in the purchase of biofertilisers, calcium, zinc and other items. He will also use the money to pay his coworkers.

With support from his family, he has been able to maximise his resources and production on his farm, stabilising his family situation and supporting the community. This is his 12th loan from PAC.
