A loan of $2,400 helped to buy supplies for maintaining his coffee plantation.

José's story

José is 56 years old and lives with his wife and their seven children in a rural community in Nicaragua. Five of his children are going to school, and their goal is to become professionals.

José's main activities are coffee growing and cattle raising, in which he has worked since he was young. The farm of this small producer is 62 manzanas in area (about 108 acres); 10 of these are planted in coffee, and of these 8 are producing and 2 are in development.

Currently his coffee production is sold through the business platforms promoted by PAC (Villages in Community Action Association), under the Fair Trade certification seal.

In order to ensure pest and disease control on his coffee plantation, this small producer is requesting a loan that will allow him to buy the supplies for maintaining his plantation. His goal is to increase his coffee production through greater yields and area planted, and to succeed in having a greater cash flow throughout the year.
