A loan helped to buy manure and fertilizer for his farm.

Tiburcio's story

Tiburcio lives with his wife and 4 children in a small isolated community in the north of Nicaragua. He started working in agriculture with cattle and growing basic grains. Because of the limited size of his farm he decided to grow coffee as this product has more economic potential. His small farm is 2.82 hectares and he farms it according to Free Trade standards.

Currently this small producer is requesting a loan which will permit him to buy manure and fertilizer to maintain 0,7 hectares of coffee in order to ensure a good harvest this season. Tiburcio's dream is to see his children become professionals and have better opportunities to develop both personally and professionally. His love of his work and his desire to fulfill his dream is what motivates this small producer to progress every day.
