Félix Pedro's story

Félix, 29, is a young entrepreneur whose main activity is coffee growing. He lives with his two children who are 1 and 3 years old on his small farm located in a rural community in Nicaragua. This young man’s wish is that unlike him who only competed third grade his children will be able to attend university which is why he says that he’ll strive to provide them with an education and better quality of life.

Félix has been dedicated to his small, 15-manzana [Central American unit of land measurement] farm for the last 11 years; six of them are planted with coffee. This line of work is his main source of income followed by basic grains that he grows both to sell and for home consumption. His farm generates about five jobs during the years.

His objective in requesting this loan is to guarantee adequate care for his coffee plants in order to prevent infestations and illnesses that are possible in this line of work. His goal is to plant five more manzanas of coffee in 2014 to gradually increase his income.
