Máximo Germán's story

Máximo is a small coffee producer from Jinotega. He lives on his small ranch with his wife and four kids, all under 10 years old. His coffee plantation is 4.23 hectares and is integrated into the Fair Trade certification process. The average coffee production of this small producer has been 100 quintals (about 10,000 pounds) Pergamino (beans with the outer parchment shell) in the last 3 years.

Up until now, Máximo has faced difficulties in the post-harvest management of his coffee and does not have the necessary conditions to carry out this process. Therefore, he is requesting financing for investment that allows him to build a wet coffee processing plant for the appropriate management of his coffee. This will assure better quality as well as reduce losses during processing. Máximo is sure that with his work and effort he will achieve a good production, and with this funding he will be able to appropriately process his harvest to obtain greater yield.
