Juan Orlando's story

Juan Orlando lives with his wife and his three children in a neighborhood of Jinotega. On his small farm, he cultivates coffee and basic grains for on-farm consumption. Coffee is the main economic activity for Juan Orlando, who is in the process of becoming Fair Trade certified.

In the last few years, he has improved his coffee production and his goal is to increase his land dedicated to the cultivation of coffee in order to improve his earnings. Currently, he is requesting a loan to purchase agricultural inputs in order to guarantee the health of his 2.1 hectares of coffee and to assure a good harvest this season. This would permit him to increase his earnings and better provide for his family.
