A loan helped to purchase supplies and fertilizers to provide maintenance to his 1.05 hectares of coffee.

Juan Jose's story

Juan has a farm of 1.05 hectares, with coffee trees grown under the criteria for certification of FLO [fair trade]. He has grown coffee for more than ten years.

As part of the annual improvements to his farm, this year he will implement a plan to improve the nutrition of his coffee trees. For this reason, he is requesting a loan that will permit him to buy agricultural inputs such as calcium, boron, and zinc, and to pay laborers for the work that needs to be done.

Thanks to the assistance of PAC's technical team, he harvests and exports quality coffee, and achieves excellent production.

This is his seventh loan from PAC.
