Maria Del Carmen's story
María del Carmen, 41, is a married housewife and farmer; she completed primary school. She and her spouse have worked in agriculture for many years. They have four children. The oldest is 22-years-old and attending university in a Bachelor’s Degree program. The second one is 20-years-old and studied industrial mechanics, the third one is 17-years-old and she completed the first year of computer science but due to personal reasons did not continue and the youngest who is 15-years-old is in the first year of the career. A granddaughter who is daughter of her third daughter also lives with her. She’s worked in agriculture, specifically growing coffee, for generations but they also grow corn and beans for home consumption. The land they have was acquired little by little thanks to their efforts and it’s located about a five minute car drive away which is the way the family gets to it. They sell what they grow by means of middlemen that come to the community to acquire it and their challenge at that moment is to recuperate a small portion of their crop that was not damaged by the La Roya [fungus]. María del Carmen dreams with making her business grow and that her children study university careers preparing themselves academically the best way possible. Her goal is to provide coffee crop assistance as soon as possible in order partly to recuperate it from the La Roya and partly to protect it. This is why she’s asking Comixmul cooperative for a loan to buy urea, fungicide, pesticide, 12-24-12 manure and coffee formula 18-26-0 to assist her coffee crop.
