Crediconfianza Group's story

Tipel is an enterprising, determined woman who has great commitment to getting ahead with her partner. The two of them work in agriculture, they plant cacao and coffee and continue investing to get more earnings and, so, to continue supporting their children's education.

Tipel is 35 years old and has four children, ages 18, 14, 10, and 8. The oldest has just finished secondary school and is studying to prepare to be able to to apply and study with the support of his parents.

At this time, Tipel is asking for a loan to maintain her cacao plot. She wants to prune, clear, and weeds it.

As a second job, she works as a day laborer, weeding other plots with her partner.
