A loan of $2,300 helps to give maintenance to his 2.8 hectares of coffee.


Jairo Jose's story

Jairo, age 38, is a coffee grower who runs a small farm of 5.63 hectares, of which 2.8 are used for cultivating coffee. He had a reduction in his cultivation area because of the coffee rust he had in previous cycles.

He lives in a remote community of Nueva Segovia with his wife and two children. He has worked for over 10 years cultivating good quality coffee. Each year represents a challenge to overcome, and this was not the exception.

For this cycle, Jairo’s challenge is to implement a nutritional improvement plan for his coffee crops. This will allow him to increase his family’s incomes. The given loan will be used to buy calcium, zinc, boron, manganese, and others; and also to pay for labor for doing this maintenance.

This is the fourth loan that he requests to PAC.
