Reinel's story

Reinel is a coffee cultivator from Santander de Quilichao in the department of Cauca. For the past four years, he has been growing specialized coffee beans to produce one of Colombia’s finest breeds for internal consumption. He currently lives with his wife and three children in a small house he built which he expects to improve periodically as he gains new land to expand his crops.

For most of his life, Reinel has been cultivating coffee, just like his father did before him. One of the key aspects he always takes into consideration is the long-term sustainability of the crops including the implementation of natural pest-control systems which do not harm the environment. A loan lets Reinel buy the supplements needed to maintain his sustainable coffee crops and support his dream of enhancing his own house.
