A loan of $375 helped to buy sacks of fertilizer for her coffee crop.


Rebeca's story

Rebeca, 23, and her husband Edgar, 25, live with their son, Ronny, 3, in the house Rebeca inherited from her parents. It is made of wood.

They are farmers and have been growing coffee on their own land for five years. At harvest time they hire workers to help them with crop collection, then sell the beans to the collection associations. Rebeca wants to renovate her home, using solid construction materials (bricks and cement). But her priority right now is fertilizer for her crop and to avoid plant disease so no harm comes to her current production.

She is very grateful for this opportunity and the financial support to continue with her work plans. She plans to use the 1,000 PEN to buy sacks of fertilizer to spread on her coffee crop.
