A loan of $600 helped to buy supplies, fertilizers, and pay for labor to maintain his coffee farm.

Henry's story

Henry is a small coffee producer from the northern part of Nicaragua. He lives with his wife and four children on a small farm where he grows primarily coffee. Henry has received three loans from the Association for People in Community Action (PAC) and all of them were repaid on time. His coffee harvest from the last crop cycle resulted in 80 quintals (1 quintal = 46 kg) of coffee beans in parchment.

In addition to working hard during this crop cycle, Henry is confident that the loan he requested can help him provide adequate maintenance for his coffee crop. He plans to buy supplies and fertilizers, as well as pay for labor. This will improve his yield and his earnings. For this small producer, compost and foliar plant food are the keys to developing his crops.
