A loan of $500 helped purchase fertilizers.

Jose Esteban's story

Jose Esteban is a small producer in Jinotega. He and his wife have two children. He works with a small area of coffee plants of 0.52 hectares, in which he has worked the past few years. His farm is well diversified, and in addition to coffee he also grows potatoes and basic grains. He previously worked in horticulture, but he decided to change his work due to the harmful chemicals used for pest control.

Currently, Jose Esteban is requesting a loan for the purchase of fertilizers that would allow him to improve the nutrition of his coffee plants, and with which he could obtain better results from the next harvest cycle for the well-being of his family.
