A loan of $675 helped to buy supplies and fertilizers for his coffee farm.

Juan Angel's story

Juan Angel is a small producer who lives with his wife and four children in a rural community in Nicaruagua. He has a small farm where he cultivates malanga (a tuber similar to taro) and coffee as his main business activity. Juan Angel is part of a group of producers that is affiliated with the Association for People in Community Action (PAC) and in the process of becoming certified Fair Trade growers. The main challenge for this producer is dealing with coffee plant diseases, so he must be confident that his crops are well-maintained.

For this crop cycle, Juan Angel is requesting a loan so that he can buy supplies and fertilizers for his coffee farm. His goal is to expand the space on his farm for growing coffee so that he can increase his earnings and improve his family’s condition.
