Mirna Elizabeth's story

Mirna Elizabeth is 39 years old, and she has been married for 17 years. She lives in a rural village in Santa Bárbara. She has a 15 year old son who goes to school. Her husband does construction work in addition to farming.

Mirna is a very hard-worker. She has worked for 15 year producing and selling wet parchment coffee. She devotes the necessary time to this business activity. All of her family produces coffee. The area where they live is suitable for this production. Also, selling coffee is currently a very profitable business in the country.

This is the first loan that she has requested. It is to be used to grow coffee, to increase the area of production, and to cover maintenance costs.

Her plan is to continue expanding the production area in order to generate more income, to help with her son’s education, and to support her family.
