A loan of $1,700 helped to purchase fertilizer and manure for his coffee crops.

Juan José's story

Juan José is a small producer in the northern zone of Nicaragua. On his small, 1.2 hectare farm, he grows coffee, staple grains, and malanga (taro). On average, he employs two people throughout the year. His coffee is grown on a 3.5 hectare area and is Fair Trade certified.

His goal is to increase his production this season, so he has requested a loan to purchase fertilizer and manure. This will allow him to be sure that he can effectively manage his coffee plantation.

Juan José is certain that the best way to move forward is to work and produce quality goods, which he will continue to do so that he can provide the best quality of life to his family.
