A loan of $4,575 helped to buy coffee plants, organic fertilizers, organic inputs and labor payment necessary to convert her coffee farm into organic production.

Noemi's story

Noemi is 54 years old and a mother of 4 children. Noemi makes living in coffee production marketed through COCAFCAL of which she is a partner at the moment. Naomi wants to convert her farms to organic production. Taking advantage of the fact that her farms are old and affected by pests, she decided to replant from scratch.

Organic production is new in the coffee business and it allows secure markets and better opportunities for marketing. Naomi wants to replant and convert 1.5 hectares to organic production. With the profits, Noemi hopes to improve the quality of life for her family and to form a heritage for her four children.

Noemi requests a loan to buy everything she needs for replanting and organic certification such as: coffee plants, organic fertilizers, organic inputs and labor payment.

Loan will help Noemi replant and have her farm certified organic. This will provide possibility to ensure a good market for her coffee.
