A loan to Pastora will give her the opportunity to improve her business by increasing her production with fertilizer and improving the quality of the coffee. She will invest this money to be able to sow more coffee plants. She will buy fertilizers and maintain her farms in order to improve her plots of land and increase her production in the upcoming coffee-growing seasons.
