A loan of $525 helped to buy fertilizers, manure, and spray pumps for her coffee plants.

Hilda's story

Hilda is a 43 year old married woman who has three children, two of whom live at home. The oldest daughter is 25 years old and is now an independent woman. The family works together in agriculture planting coffee and basic grains including corn and beans. She learned these agricultural activities long ago from her parents while she was a child. She has a elementary school education but could not continue studying because the income that her parents made was very minimal.

Hilda is requesting help to buy fertilizer, manure and spray pumps to care for her coffee crops. If she does not take good care of these crops they can be damaged by blights that particularly affect this type of crop.

She dreams to harvest a greater variety of products on her land because she believes that this will be the legacy of her two children who, together with their father, help with with the coffee crops. With these products they can have security, as they should work and continue developing the legacy for their children and future generations.
