Jairo's story

Jairo is a 22-year-old farmer who works primarily in the production of coffee, which is his main source of income. Jairo has a son under his responsibility. He has been growing coffee since he was 16 years old. Jairo sells coffee with the help of COCAFCAL, of which he is a member. With the profits from his coffee he meets the needs of his family. He wants to be able to build a small legacy for his son's future.

Jairo has a great deal of passion for growing quality coffee, and linked to this passion he has already obtained several certification seals for his coffee plantations, such as Fair Trade, Rainforest and UTZ. Now he is interested in entering the program of organic management and production, primarily because in this way, he ensures a better market for his coffee, and also makes his coffee plantation more sustainable and environmentally friendly.

Jairo is requesting a loan to be able to carry out the work necessary to be able to carry out the work necessary to convert his coffee plantation to organic. The new quality certification will make his coffee more marketable, which will increase his income and as he says, "The most important thing isn't the price of the coffee, but rather that we protect the land that is the inheritance of our children."

A loan will help Jairo to have better markets for his coffee, and therefore obtain better profits, which will allow him and his family to have a better quality of life, and enable him to offer his son a quality education.
