A loan of $1,025 helped to buy agricultural inputs to help her coffee crop and pay for labor.

Maria Esperanza's story

María Esperanza is very happy, above all with with God for giving her the opportunity and blessing of this type of support crossing her path. Before she got her first loan, she had a lot of trouble tending to her coffee crop and giving it the attention needed to make a profit from her harvest. She is also grateful to the COMIXMUL cooperative, together with the Kiva lenders, for having believed and trusted in her as a small producer. Thanks to their assistance, she bought all of the agricultural inputs needed, which she used to help and maintain her crops, which gave her an excellent grain that she sold to different buyers in the area.

Currently Maria Esperanza asks that you support her with another loan that will help her to maintain her coffee crop by newly purchasing agriculture inputs. Her crop is deteriorated and mistreated from the last harvest, and the plants were left exposed to different diseases and other things that can harm the plant, so she will also pay for labor to have them tended to.
