A loan of $1,150 helped to buy supplies and fertilizers for his coffee plantation.

José Angel's story

José Angel is a 34-year-old entrepreneur who lives on a 1.4 acre plot in a highly productive area north of Nicaragua. He works as a laborer on farms in his community and also grows coffee in the middle of his plot. He is requesting a loan for the supplies needed for strengthening the 3-4 year-old plantation.

With this loan, José Angel will be able to ensure the nutrition requirements of the coffee. He says, "The truth is that my farm is small and I cannot continue to develop new areas, just give proper handling to the area I do have." Therefore, his goal is to increase production yields and exceed 60 to 80 quintals of parchment coffee in this cycle to improve both his income and the conditions of his family.
