A loan of $1,925 helped to buy supplies and pay labor costs for the maintenance of coffee.

Andres Del Carmen's story

Andrés is a small coffee producer who lives in northern Nicaragua with his wife and four children. He has worked in the coffee industry since childhood, and for ten years has had his own 5-acre coffee farm. In the last three years, Andrés has generated two jobs in his community, and achieved an average of 160 pounds of parchment coffee per cycle.

The main challenges for Andrés are pests and diseases, which he is sure will affect the maintenance of his crop. Because of this, Andrew is requesting a loan to buy supplies and pay for labor costs for the maintenance of his coffee, and thus ensure a good harvest for the 2014-2015 cycle.

The goal of Andrés is to increase his coffee area in the short term, as he is sure that coffee is a profitable item that generates currency for the country.
