Milagros's story

Milagros is 24 years old, she is single and lives with her paretns. For more than 4 years she has been working in the Las Brisas hotel, located on Central Road about 5 blocks from her house. She is a receptionist and she said she likes her job. The money that she earns has permitted to help her mother with the cultivations whenever she has needed the support, in addition, she loves agriculture, especially cofee because she considers it a very profitable product (especially on holidays). Milgros will start her own plantation in her mother's field because she would like to become a prosperous agriculturer. She will also continue with her work at the hotel to be able to offer her clients the coffee beans from her plantation, without needing a distributor. Milagros is very much looking forward to the coffee plantation project, but she is also mindful that it will take many years of hard work to earn a steady clientele. It is her first loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner) and she has good expectations with independent groups and their work dynamics. She has made the compromise to pay her dues on time as indicated by her credit agent. With the funds she is requesting she will purchase coffee seedlings to start her first plantation.
