A loan of $1,500 helped buy soluble manure, plant fertilizer, insecticide, and fungicide for his coffee plantation.


Jesus's story

Jesús is a simple man from the countryside who was born in the municipality of Yali on the outskirts of Estelí. He is married and has seven children, three girls and four boys. Only the youngest is still at school. Jesús earns his living growing organic coffee. Thanks to help from a previous loan he has managed to produce coffee despite disease that affected the plants, and he succeeded in covering the cost of production and paying off the loan on time.

Now he is seeking another loan to buy soluble manure, plant fertilizer, insecticide, and fungicide so he can look after his coffee plantation. With the loan he will be able to increase production as the plants will be well cared for.

In the future Jesús would like to improve his house and buy agricultural supplies and equipment. His next challenge is to boost production and yield for this new cycle.
