A loan helped to purchase fertilizers and liquid fertilizers to apply to leaves to maintain the coffee crop.


Maria Sandra's story

María is a 27-year-old woman, a single mother. She has 2 children and lives in the municipality of Graicas, Lempira.

For 10 years, she has worked in agriculture. She has her own crop of coffee and corn on her own land. Previously, she worked growing beans. She sells the coffee and corn harvests at the end of the year by the quintal to local intermediaries.

María asks ODEF for a loan for the sum of 6,000 lempiras to invest in the purchase of fertilizers and liquid fertilizers to apply to leaves to maintain the coffee and corn crops. Her plan is to increase her harvest and improve her family's living conditions.
