A loan of $500 helped to buy fertilizer and compost for her coffee crop.

Delmis Leticia's story

Delmis is a married, 31 year old woman. From her marriage, she has a son, who lives with and depends on his parents for everything, as he is a minor. She studied to grade 6 of primary school, thanks to effort.

She was supported in part by her own parents, who taught her to work the earth in the cultivation and growth of coffee. But, like everything in life, her biggest challenge is to keep her crop clean, free from plagues and diseases which deteriorate the plant and grain like rust.

Currently, she needs help buying fertilizers and compost to maintain and strengthen the plant from its root to the grain, obtaining a quality final product.

Her plan is to expand her coffee crop further, strengthen her plants in order to have an excellent crop and earn income for herself and her family, forming capital which she can re-invest in her crop and leave her commitments.
