Bessy Lourdes's story

Bessy is 23 years old and the single mother of one daughter. Bessy works cultivating coffee and vegetables. With the support of her family, she is working on helping her young daughter get ahead. Bessy dreams of her daughter having a secure future through the option of a quality education and everything else necessary for a dignified life.

Growing vegetables in a very new activity in the region and local markets are insured through Kiva partner COCAFCAL, where Bessy is a partner. The weather conditions are favorable and markets are very profitable.

Currently Bessy wants to increase vegetable production of cucumbers, lettuce and cabbage, which allow her to earn income to meet her needs and those of her little daughter to help her have a better quality of life.

Bessy is requesting a loan to buy materials necessary for the preparation of the garden, including seeds, organic fertilizers, manual labor, and insecticides and pesticides, among others. With her earnings from these products, Bessy hopes to improve her quality of life and that of her daughter. A loan would allow Bessy to have better income and more possibilities for helping her daughter get ahead.
