Teresa De Jesus's story
With the economic help financed by COMIXMUL in alliance with Kiva, Doña Teresa was able to buy the various supplies to give the possible maintenance and care to her plantings of coffee. Since this made her harvest profitable and assured for sale, she sold it at a very good price in the local market and to different intermediaries in the zone. Doña Teresa de Jesus is again applying to be supported with a second loan, which will allow her to acquire agricultural supplies, such as buying compost, fertilizers, and foliar sprays and pay for labor for weeding, since she will contract with various people from the same area so that they can help her to complete her objective. With this financing, she will be able to improve her plantation and business, obtaining better income for her family and household, since before having access to the loans from the COMIXMUL cooperative, it was difficult for her to access other financial institutions, and her greatest fear was losing her coffee harvest for lack of maintenance and the supplies that would keep this from happening.
