A loan of $600 helped to buy fertilizer and foliar for his coffee crop.

Lucio Vidal's story

Lucio is a small farmer in northern Nicaragua. He is 36 years old and has 3 children with his wife. They live on their small 7 acre farm, 2 of which are for coffee. This small farmer has produced 40, 35 and 50 quintals of parchment coffee the last 3 cycles. For this new cycle, he is asking for a loan to guarantee fertilizer and foliar for his coffee crop, according to basic technical requirements for his coffee, in order to improve the product quality. He believes that with his hard work and care he will be able to obtain better yields and with them better income that will allow him to give his family better living conditions.
