Santos Nelson's story
Santos is a small producer who lives with his wife and five children in a small coffee producing community in Nicaragua. He has been raising coffee since his infancy and has been earning a living this way for more than 15 years, under the Fair Trade certification criteria. Santos has doubled production on his farm over the past three years, thanks to the semi-technical management from PAC, association of which he is a member. His goal is to increase his coffee production more, so he is asking for a loan to buy farming supplies for adequate maintenance of his crops. Santos’ dreams are to have a farm that is the model for his community and for his children to have a better future. He works hard daily for this, teaching them to work, supporting their education, and instilling values in them so that they will be able to live better in their community.
