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

A loan helped to buy the needed materials to convert his coffee crops to organic such as organic manure, organic pesticides and planting live barriers.

Jose Marel's story

Marel is 48 years old and works producing coffee under the various certifications like Organic and Fair Trade. He is a member of COCAFCAL and sells his coffee through it. Marel has more 32 years of experience in producing coffee and it is his main source of income. His main wish is for his five children to have the opportunities he never had.

Marel wants to certify his plantation according to the organic production standards which would allow him to get better prices for his coffee and give him the opportunity to grow in an environmentally friendly way. Marel is thinking of providing his children a higher quality of living with the profits obtained from the added value of his coffee.

A loan will help Marel to have higher income from his coffee and make his coffee crops sustainable and friendly to the environment.
