Limoncito - Jaime Narvaez Ibarra

I was born in La Vereda Llano Largo Muncipaly of Tablón de Gómez. When I was 19 years old I was struck by the planting of coffee, and without thinking twice I planted my first 300 trees. At this time I already known my wife Noralba Guerrero and we organized a beautiful family. We have 4 wonderful children, my oldest daughter Jenny Narvaez Guerrero 25, Mauricio Narvaez Guerrero 22, Brayan Narvaez Guerrero 18 and Danny Guerrero Sergio Narvaez 15 years. And I’m now a happy grandparent of a beautiful girl named Vanessa Ordoñez Evelyn Narvaez 2 years old.

Coffee cultivation has been all along the support of my family and so I pulled out of bachelor my 3 children and the last one is in his 9th grade. Today my family has 4 hectares of coffee that are technologically advanced, year after year following the technical recommendations of the extension service.

My dreams are projected to see my children professionally made ​​but always instilling the desire for the field and never forget that it was this which gave us the power to fulfill our goals.

With coffee I became a person recognized in my village as an example of hard work, perseverance and unconditional support for my people and today I won a very important place in the national competition for the Cup of Excellence which was held in the Department of Huila.
