Luis Alberto's story

Luis is a small coffee producer from the North of Nicaragua. He works with a Fairtrade certificate, with which he has been able to improve his income in order to support his wife and two children. In his small farm he gives 15 temporary jobs with which he helps the economy of his community. Since he was young he dreamed of being a coffee producer. This is the inheritance that his parents left him and that he wants to leave his children. He hopes to build a good based farm in his farm, so his descendants may have better opportunities to face financial difficulties. In order to increase the harvest of his coffee plants and their nutrition, Luis is facing a new challenge; it is that he does not have the needed capital to buy inputs, which would give the most of his small farm. Therefore, he is requesting financing in order to buy these inputs.
