I was born in a small rural area in the north of Peru called El Progreso. I am the second youngest out of eight siblings, and I am really proud to mention that my parents are coffee farmers. I probably got familiar with the coffee production since I was in my mother’s womb; my parents taught me and my siblings to work in the coffee fields with dedication and a lot of effort since our early years.
I enjoyed helping my family to cultivate coffee, but I decided to follow the education path instead. I got a college degree in Agroindustrial Engineering in Peru, and now I am studying a Master of Business Administration at Clemson University in the United States.
As you can see, God has shown his kindness through my whole life. Now, I also have the opportunity to volunteer for the Cooperative Valle del Marañon (COOPVAMA) where I am a Relationship Coffee Specialist. I decided to do that because of the high desire to use my skills to help my people in Peru.
Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in knowing more about coffee. As I always say, your growing would be our farmers growing as well.
