Estela's story

Estela is a 31-year old young woman, married and mother of three minor children, who are studying in different grades at primary school. Together with her husband, she works in agriculture cultivating coffee in a plot that, thank to God, they own. After many years of hard work, they were able to buy it four years ago through her father-in-law, who gave them good payment conditions. Estela finished 6th grade in primary education and couldn't continue studying due to a lack of financial support. She sells her product in the local market to neighbors, friends and buyers in the area. Her crops are located 5km away from her home and they use the motorcycle to get there and maintain them.

She's requesting a loan to buy fertilizers and fumigation pumps for her coffee crops. These will help her to obtain a better harvest and quality product to sell. Her goal is to have a product of good quality that will derive good profits for her family that she'll keep investing in her property, and to make her dream come true of seeing her children graduating from college with good degrees to start a family business.
