Gloria's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped buy agricultural supplies for her coffee crops.
Gloria, 53, is a housewife and coffee farmer with a 6th grade education. She has 8 children, but only 7 are alive as one of her daughters died. Three of her children still live with her: one that's 24 who finished elementary school; the second one is 21 and graduated as an auto mechanic; and the last one finished elementary school. When Gloria's daughter died, she took in both of her daughter's children who are in grade 2. Gloria, her husband and family are farmers who grow corn and beans for consumption and to sell, but their biggest source of income is their coffee bean crop. The land is located approximately 15 minutes from her house, with no direct access to it they have to access it by way of their neighbor's land. She is requesting a loan to buy 3 quintals of urea, 2550 new coffee plants, 3 quintals of formula 12-24-12 and 3 quintals of formula 18-26-0, with which she can protect, secure and strengthen her old crops and her new ones. Her biggest dream is to rebuild her house, as it's in very bad shape, so she can give her children a dignified place to live. Her biggest goal is to continue growing her business by buying more land, which she thinks she can do with the income from her business.
