We loan because...
Coffee is the second most valuable exported legal commodity on the planet (after oil). Literally millions of people depend on the coffee industry for their livelihood. For its consumers, coffee minimally delivers the largest jolt of the world's most widely taken psychoactive drug (caffeine). At various times coffee has been claimed to be an aphrodisiac, enema, nerve tonic and life-extender.

In a buyer's market, the share of the coffee trade enjoyed by producers has fallen by two-thirds in 10 years. The result is that the livelihoods of millions of peasant farmers and their families are threatened in a way that entire rural communities disappear and force desperate peasants into everything from crime to illegal migration.
