A loan of $2,925 helped to buy supplies and pay for the necessary labor in order to maintain his coffee crop.

Nelson José's story

Nelson is a 30-year-old producer who lives with his wife and four-year-old daughter in a community in northern Nicaragua. On his small farm, he cultivates basic grains for personal consumption, but he also has 8.6 hectares set aside for growing coffee. During the last crop cycle, he was able to produce 230 quintals (1 quintal = 100 kg) of coffee beans in parchment.

For this young man, weather changes in recent years have brought about more incidents of coffee pests and diseases. He tackles these challenges with good farm management and by replacing his plants.

In order to guarantee adequate maintenance of his coffee crops, Nelson is requesting a loan that will secure the purchase of supplies and the payment of farm labor that is demanded of this crop. In the end, he expects to achieve an increase in output and quality from this current production cycle.

Nelson is confident in his work and wants to excel by increasing his earnings. This will allow him to improve his home and provide a good education for his daughter.
