A loan of $675 helped to buy coffee plants and fertilizer.

Susana's story

When Susana got married she started working in the coffee business alongside her husband; he taught her everything related to production. She does some of the tasks in the coffee fields such as adjusting shade, pruning, replanting, four weedings per year and each harvest consists of four to six cuts.

They did very well with the previous harvest in that production was 35 tons that were sold to the “Unión Regional de Huatusco” [coffee cooperative] to be exported. Susana hopes the next harvest will be as good as the one just completed and needs to buy fertilizer and new plants which is why she’s asking for a loan in order to give continuity to the project they’ve worked so hard at.

Susana and her husband have a son and their greatest wish is to give him everything necessary so that he’ll have a good education and can attend university in a few years.
