Elías's story

San Sebastián de Yali is a municipality located in the north of the Jinotega department and known for its forests, its orchid species and its land suitable for coffee and vegetables. Elías lives in a neighbor community called El Gorrión with his wife and three children, whom he needs to support and provide study opportunities. He is a professional coffee farmer and known for being honest and hardworking and for having over 20 years of experience. His land extends as far as 8 blocks and, being a wooded area, it is entirely suitable for coffee cultivation.

He recently visited Ceprodel and requested this loan to buy fertilizer, fungicide and foliar fertilizer, and to cover labor costs to maintain the coffee. He believes this will be beneficial. The impact and benefits for him and his family will be positive given that he will improve their quality of life and financial conditions with the income obtained from each harvest.
