A loan of $850 helped to buy seeds of coffee plants to sow.

Marina's story

Marina is 47 years old. She is a very hard-working person that works planting coffee plants. She sees to planting the seeds and taking all the precautions necessary so that they will be healthy plants and produce excellent fruit. She lives with her husband and four young children, who are all in school. Marina has many customers that purchase her plants at good prices in order to grow coffee and sell it in different restaurants.

The quality of the product is very important in this business, and in order for Marina to be able to get new clients she has to be able to assure them that the plants have all of the necessary characteristics, which is a job in which you have to invest a lot of time and money. For this reason, Marina is asking for a loan from INTEGRAL, so that she will be able to count on the money required to buy more coffee seeds, fertilizer, and to invest in the improvement of the facilities of her nursery. This way, she will be able to guarantee the quality of her product.
