A loan helped to pay for labor to help with maintaining her parcel of coffee plants.


Marcelina's story

Marcelina did not have the opportunity to attend school because of limited financial resources. Unfortunately, her husband died, but they had four children together. Only a daughter lives with her.

Marcelina has taken care of the household duties from a very young age. In addition, she cultivates coffee and is involved in every step, from caring for the land to harvesting the final product.

Marcelina will use this loan to pay for labor to help with maintaining her parcel of coffee plants. Her dreams are to work as long as God gives her life and to see her children happy with families of their own.
