Gloria Argentina's story
Gloria is a hard-working, dynamic and very capable woman who is a single mother with two sons. One of them is the property manager and is responsible for doing the necessary maintenance so that the coffee crops do not deteriorate. The younger son is in fourth grade at the community primary school. Gloria has completed secondary education and graduated as a primary teacher. She has a permanent job in the community primary school. Her property consists of 2 hectares of land planted with Lempira coffee, since it is well known that this is more resistant to pests and rust. She learnt how to plant and grow coffee from a very young age, thanks to her parents who are farmers. The knowledge has been passed down from generation to generation as a source of income for the family. Gloria sells her coffee locally, as she has her own customer who is a coffee buyer. Her goals and plans are to improve her quality of life by extending her land and diversifying her crops to avoid concentrating on a single crop, and to support her sons in their education. She has other plans which will lead to an improvement in the family's financial situation. Gloria is asking for financial help from the various lenders in the Kiva system so that she can buy the various supplies which are used to promote the coffee crops and keep them healthy, with excellent foliage. These supplies include manure, fertilizers and foliar feeds.
