A loan of $825 helped to pay for fertiliser, to adapt the land and pay for labourers.

Sandra Patricia's story

Forty-two year old Sandra is from the countryside. Since she was a child she has lived in the small town of Santa Bárbara. She has made a living working in the fields and this has allowed her to earn enough to support her family, whom she is responsible for.

Every day she gets up very early and starts her work, collecting the coffee. Later she begins to do her household chores. Her work is the only income that goes to paying the household bills and so Sandra works very hard with the aim of improving her living conditions.

She is now applying for a loan to buy fertiliser, to adapt the land and pay for labourers, in order to improve her crop and increase production. This will then result in a higher income and more stability for the family.
