Ana Bessy's story

Ana is a 25 year old, hardworking and entrepreneurial young woman with many desires to get ahead. She is in a common law marriage and has a three year old daughter who is dependent on her in every way. She has an elementary school education and completed the fifth grade. She was not able to continue attending school due to lack of financial help from her parents who had limited resources. It was they who taught her to work the land when she was young and she has been working in this trade for five years with her husband. She owns the land that she works with her husband. It’s located 50m from her house and they were able to acquire it with great effort. They are able to walk there and it makes it easier to tend to her crops.

Now Ana is asking for help to buy compost and fertilizers for her coffee crop so she can obtain a healthy harvest and will be able to take full advantage of it.

Her dreams are to see her daughter complete her university studies and for her not to have to face the same situation that she had to in her youth, and be able to help her so that she will be better in life and be able to be a woman of means who can complete what she wants on a daily basis.
