Mayra Mirtala
Mayra Mirtala is 34 years old. She is a happy and hard-working person who makes her living growing coffee. She is married and has three children, two of whom are boys. Together with her family, she lives in the Las Vegas community in the municipality of Trojes. Mayra began growing coffee in 1993; she learned the skill from her parents. The workday on the farm starts at 6:00am and finishes at 12:00pm. She has the help of her husband and some workers. Mayra also runs a small grocery from her home. Her children trade off helping her with the customers. Mayra decided to get into the grocery business because her earnings from coffee growing weren't enough to cover the household expenses and her children's schooling. Mayra does not currently have any major difficulties supporting her family. She feels very grateful to god and thankful for the financial help she has been granted through FAMA. Mayra needs the requested loan to purchase fertilizers to be able to fertilize the roughly 12 acres of land she has planted with coffee. With the help of the loan, she will have better quality production and will be able to sell at a better price. Mayra's goal is to keep her businesses active and to continue getting into other businesses. She also wants to continue to humbly give her family a better quality of life. This is Mayra's third cycle with FAMA and she plans to punctually comply with her re-payment schedule.

La jornada laboral en la finca de cafe inicia desde las 6:00 am y culmina a las 12:00 pm, y cuenta con el apoyo de su esposo y de algunos trabajadores. Mayra tambien tiene una pequeña pulperia en su casa de habitacion y sus hijos se turnan para ayudar a atenderla, ella decidio incursionar en el negocio de venta de abarroteria ya que los ingresos que le dejaba el cultivo de cafe no eran suficientes para cubrir los gastos del hogar y del estudio de sus hijos. Actualmente Mayra no tiene mayor dificultades para el sostenimiento de su familia y se siente muy agradecida con Dios y con el apoyo recibido por medio de los prestamos otorgados por FAMA. El prestamo solicitado lo necesita para comprar fertilizantes y asi poder fertilizar las 7 mz de tierra del cultivo de cafe. Con el apoyo del prestamo su produccion sera de mayor calidad y podra venderla a un mejor precio. Su meta es seguir manteniendo sus negocios activos y seguir incursionando en otros, tambien seguirle dando humildemente a su familia una mejor condicion de vida.
