Rosa Migdalia's story

Rosa Migdalia, 38, has been married for 18 years; she has four children who are 12, 14, 16 and 18 years old who are currently in school. She lives in the village of La Peña, Santa Bárbara and her husband’s a coffee grower.

Rosa has been working growing coffee for 18 years and she also grows plantain; in addition, she sets up coffee nurseries for planting. She’s had this experience her entire life. It is her family’s tradition because it’s a way of earning a living and be able to develop and to educate her children. She has a two-manzana [Central American unit of land measure] plot of land under cultivation. They sell the coffee as damp beans and the plantain is sold by the bunch. She dedicates all the necessary time to this activity.

This is her first ODEF loan and she will use it to buy fertilizer, manure and herbicide to provide better care for her coffee and plantain plantations and to cultivate the available land they have.
