A loan helped to purchase soil amendments to maintain the coffee.

Lucila's story

Lucila is the mother of seven children who go to school. She works growing coffee and it was thanks to the father that she began to work in agriculture. The father got her the land for coffee, worked it and purchased a half manzana of land with coffee.

When she got married, she built her house on the land and they began to work together. They planted several manzanas of coffee and, with the production, they have managed to get their legacy. Her goal is to improve her quality of life with the profitability of the agricultural business and, with the support of her spouse, to be a self-sustaining producer.

With the financing from Aldea, she has managed to cultivate her farm better. She got land with abundant water which supplies her house.

Currently, she is asking for a loan with Kiva to purchase soil amendments and fertilizers for five manzanas of coffee. Her goal with this loan is to increase her assets, the productivity in the crops and, in the end, her quality of life.
