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

Ramiro León's story

Ramiro is a small producer from northern Nicaragua who is dedicated to coffee. His farm is 5.6 hectares of which 2.8 are coffee. Before turning to the cultivation of coffee, he worked with livestock but decided to change his activity because the area where he lives has more potential for coffee, plus it is considered a profitable item if properly served.

In the last three cycles, this producer has earned an average production of 85 quintals of parchment coffee. His goal is to increase these yields in this cycle and achieve a production of 120 quintals of parchment coffee. He is requesting a loan that allows him to purchase inputs and fertilizers necessary for the proper management of his coffee plantation.

Although Ramiro is now a senior, he has the physical conditions and the desire to continue serving his small farm. His dream is to increase his coffee production area and work in partnership with his children to produce a significant volume of coffee.
