A loan of $700 helped to buy coffee plants.

Leopolda's story

Leopolda and her husband Guadalupe have been are organic coffee producers for more than 30 years. Together with their their son and his wife they work at their coffee plantation, this way all the income stays in the family. Last harvest season wasn't very good for Leopolda and her family because the weather didn't cooperate and they were only able to harvest 3 tonnes of coffee. She needs to buy new plants so that in the following years her situation improves and that's why she requests a loan. Leopolda mentions that a few years ago she finished studying her basic education and knows it's never too late to get ahead and she applies this philosophy to every aspect of her life. In addition to coffee, Leopolda and her family have the goal to start a pork producing business and increase their income to have a better quality of life.
