Hugo Javier's story

Hugo, who is 42 years old, lives with his wife and five children in a community of Jinotega. He has a 23.1-hectare farm, of which 3.5 hectares are coffee and from which he has been able to harvest up to a maximum of 295 quintals of Pergamino coffee. He produces this in accordance with the criteria for Fair Trade certification. For this cycle, this producer is requesting a loan to build a wet processing plant that will allow him to ensure a higher quality coffee and reduce his expenses. Until now what he has done to meet this need is rent a plant to process his coffee, but this increases his expenses. His goal for the next few years is to modernize his farm and increase the productive areas of his small farm, as he believes this is a profitable profession that will allow him to make more income for his family.
