A loan of $900 helped to increase her coffee production, sowing more plants and buying organic fertilizers.

Guadalupe's story

Guadalupe is a 67-year-old housewife who lives in her own home together with her family. She has 20 years experience growing coffee. When she was a little girl, Guadalupe was taught this trade. She was taught how to provide coffee plants with the care they need. She is an organic coffee producer and has always taught her children the importance of farming organically so as not to pollute the earth. She currently produces 10 tons of coffee per harvest and would like to increase her production, renewing her farm with new plants and fertilizing her existing plants in order to obtain a bigger harvest. Her goal as a coffee grower is to increase her production, sowing new plants. This is why she is requesting a loan. She will buy plants and organic fertilizers which she will use on her farm so that she can increase her production and her profits. This will help her to fulfill her dream which is to re-model her home and thereby improve her quality of life.
