Lindor Wisly lives with his wife and children in Dondon, Haiti. He and his family depend on their coffee crops as the main portion of their household income. But up until recently, climate change, crop disease and other factors limited Lindor’s ability to make a living. He’d work up to 16 hours a day and have little to show for it.
But with your gift today, farmers like Lindor can improve their coffee crops.
The support of friends like you has already made a tremendous difference in Lindor’s life. With your help he’s learned:
- To combat crop disease and pests that threaten his coffee trees
- Important agricultural techniques that increase the yield and value of his coffee crop
- Crop diversification, so that now he grows fruits and vegetables for his family to eat and sell for income
Now Lindor reports he can provide for his family’s needs. He’s proud of his farm and excited about the future he’s building on it – especially for his young son.
“One thing that makes me feel really proud is that I can take care of my child’s needs,” he says, “If he tells me he needs something, the minute he asks, I buy it for him. That makes me happy.”
The majority of the world’s coffee is produced by small-scale farmers who rely on their land to feed and support their families. Your gift today helps families like Lindor’s get the most out of their land, cope with crop disease and changing weather patterns, and lift their families out of poverty.
