Los Papales Estate, Jinotega Martha Veronica Lopez Martha Veronica Lopez, is well known in Jinotega. She is the manager of one of the most important banks of the region, but she is better known for her devotion to the farm that she inherited from her mother Los Papales. This farm is only 15 minutes away from the city. The farm offers a beautiful and unique view of all the city of Jinotega. Since I was a little girl I knew what was to work in the field and I had no problem in learning the coffee business Today I am business administrator and I move within the banking World I have learned that in order to sell the coffee you have to know some tricks many times the coffee might have been very well handled but if you do not find an adequate buyer you may run the risk of selling your harvest at a low price regardless of how much you have invested on it While we walk around the wet mill, the Mandador (farm manager) shows Veronica the recent works that been done in the washing basins. He then continues inspecting the growth of the coffee trees that have been sowed in the highest spot of the mountain. Since the farm is so close to the city, Veronica is thinking to live permanently in the farm. She is building an elegant casona (house), which is in the last phase of construction. In the next coffee season, my two daughters and I will be full time working in the picking activities. My house is almost ready. Living in the farm will allow us to interact with all the members of this farm and also to direct accordingly the development plans. Los Papales is considered a model farm. It has a school for the children of the workers, housing for the permanent workers, an extensive camp, all the facilities of the coffee mills extremely clean and the good taste that it gives to be managed by a woman. My Mother Angelina Lopez is the Owner of Los Papales but I take care of the Farm.
