Maria Eugenia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy agricultural supplies at wholesale (insecticide, fungicide, manure, fertilizers, and other items).


Maria Eugenia's story

Maria is a 43 year old farmer who is hard-working and humble. She learned how to farm at a young age from her father. Thanks to him, today she supports herself through farming. She has a parcel of land where she grows coffee. The crop is harvested and sold in the municipal market where she lives.

The loan will be used to buy agricultural supplies at wholesale (insecticide, fungicide, manure, fertilizers, and other items). This will permit her to acquire the items at a lower cost and thus she will be able to meet the challenges that will come when she doesn't have enough capital to make purchases as the items are rather expense and it is difficult to care for the crops. In addition the price of the food is not stable and there is not always leftover money. Nevertheless this work has enable her to support her family. Maria maintains that her objective for the future in the near term is to grow her land to capacity, as today she only has a small portion cultivated because of lack of capital. More land farmed would guarantee an economic stability for her family, which consists of her husband and children, who she will be able to provide a better quality of life and well-being.
