Sra. Edelmira is 54 years old and the mother of six children. She resides in the rural section of the town of Taulabe in the Department of Comayagua.

Doña Edelmira has been planting and producing coffee for three years. The coffee beans that she produces are either sold unprocessed, roasted in its parchment shell, or dried. At the moment, she is requesting a loan in the amount of 10,000 HNL to invest in the purchase of fertilizer and the payment of labor for clearing her farmland. She believes the loan will help her increase production and take full advantage of all the coffee beans that she produces.

In the future, she plans to buy land so that she can plant more coffee and increase production.
