but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy compost and weed her coffee plantation, which is destined for organic production.

Carmen María's story

Carmen Maria, who is 64 years old, lives in the hamlet of Alto Potrerillo in the district of San Ignacio, Peru. She has worked in raising coffee since she was very young, and it has allowed her to raise her children and give them an education.

She cultivates one hectare of coffee as her principal activity, but she also generates additional income by raising and selling small animals such as chickens, guinea pigs, and pigs, which helps her with the family sustenance.

This is her second loan with Norandina, and she will use it to apply compost and weed her plantations to assure a quality coffee harvest in the coming year.
