Nicaragua / Ronald & Noelia 'Fighting Poverty Through Quality' Microlot

from 18.00

:: Description ::
Ronald and his wife Noelia produce yellow and red catuai coffee in the Las Nubes region of Matagalpa, near the Jinotega border. The area is called Las Nubes because it is literally up in the clouds. Given the amount of care that they give to their coffee, their microlot of purely catuai beans (red and yellow) is of excellent quality (as as you can see in his coffee’s nitrogen-rich deep green and well-cared-for leaves). We gave Ronald and Noelia a loan in the off-season to finance their farm and all the inputs it requires. 

Ronald and Noelia have nine kids: Efrain Jonathan Tercero Granada, Lesther David, Roland Jose, Ever Joel, Mario Francisco, Jesús Manuel, Jorvin Antonio, Noelia Guadalupe, and Leonel Vladimir. They also have a cow that is pregnant and will eventually give the family milk. With such a large family we hope they earn enough to feed their kids and keep them in school to an advanced level. 

Gold Mountain Coffee Growers, LLC, is a social enterprise that, in addition to its own farm (Finca Idealista), works directly with specialty coffee producers in Nicaragua to connect them with roasters abroad. It obtains higher prices for producers with excellent quality coffee while carrying out sustainable development projects in communities, including free computing classes for girls, medical assistance such as an operation for a young girl so she could walk for the first time, microcredit, running water in schools, and educational supplies. 

Producers are using the benefits of higher prices to improve their coffee processing equipment and production, houses and their overall standard of living.
