Jesús's story

Jesús is a small coffee grower in northern Nicaragua. At 59 years of age, he is a producer who is passionate about what he does. Jesús, his wife, and their three children work on their small farm in order to improve their living conditions.

Jesús learned how to farm from his father. Now he is passing on his knowledge to his children and teaching them the love of coffee growing so that their descendants can follow in their footsteps.

For the past three cycles, Jesús has maintained a quality harvest and stable volumes despite the spread of coffee rust that has affected coffee plantations throughout the country. This is considered to be one of the most catastrophic plant diseases that is known in all of history.

In order to keep his crops well-developed, Jesús is requesting a loan in order to buy farming supplies that will help improve the nutrition for his plants. This is part of the maintenance regimen for his coffee farm. As a result, he will continue achieving results that will positively impact his life and his community.
