A loan helped to buy fertilizers and to weed his organic production at his coffee farm.


Mario Ramón's story

Mario, 46, lives with his wife and his son in Caserío Nueve de Octubre, San Ignacio district, San Ignacio province. He devotes himself to coffee production.

He currently cultivates three hectares of coffee, and he wishes to set up new areas with coffee, increasing his production. He will later sell it through his Cooperativa.

He dreams of improving the facilities at his house and of giving his family a better quality of life.

The loan will allow him to increase his productivity and to run his farm properly by caring for his plants in a timely fashion.

This is his first loan with Norandino. He is grateful for the loan because it allows him to better plan his finances.

This loan is special because:

It supports lucrative and sustainable livelihoods for organic farmers.
