A loan of $825 helped to grow coffee, buy fertilizer, and maintain her crops.


Miriam Lisseth's story

Miriam is 40 years old. She is married and lives with her husband and parents in a small village in Taulabe, Comayagua. Miriam is a farmer. For 3 years, she has grown coffee, which she sells in the local market. The price of this product yields a profit and she supports herself. She has liked working the land a lot, since with this business she has covered her household expenses. Currently she is requesting a loan of 16,000 lempiras, which she will use to buy manure and coffee seeds and maintain the farm. Her goal is to continue growing her crops and helping her family.
