Guadalupe's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to establish approx. 5 acres of coffee and maintain approx. 13.5 acres of harvestable coffee.
Guadalupe and her husband make a living in agriculture, specifically, growing coffee. In addition, 54-year-old Guadalupe owns a small business: a well-stocked variety store that is a continuous source of income. With the objective of increasing her coffee production, the beneficiary is requesting a loan for maintaining approx. 13.5 acres [8 manzanas] of coffee. She will invest the loan in the purchase of fertilizers and supplies, for the purpose of taking good care of her crops and thus obtaining a better yield. Additionally, she needs the loan to establish approx. 5 acres [3 manzanas] of coffee. Her objective is to continue expanding her acreage of harvestable coffee, as it is a stable and very profitable source of income.
