Rubia Yolanda's story

Rubia Yolanda is a 25-year-old mother and primary school teacher with an entrepreneurial spirit. Each day she teaches the kindergarten children of her community, putting in a lot of effort and care so that each day is better than the last.

Rubia is married and is thankful to God for her husband. They have undertaken a project together to improve their property and their coffee crops.

The land that Rubia cultivates was inherited by her parents and it was they who taught her from a young age how to work in agriculture. Her parents also supported her so she was able to study.

Rubia’s coffee is sold on a small scale in a local market. Her neighbors and others describe her coffee as high-quality, pure and healthy. Rubia has a well-organized home life and together with her husband she has worked cultivating coffee for more than twelve years. They also have a son who is in kindergarten.

Rubia is requesting this loan to buy fertilizer, manure and pesticide sprayers to improve her coffee harvest and earn more income for herself and her family.

Rubia’s goal is to use this loan to fertilize and enlarge her coffee crop and improve her next harvest so that she can increase the size of her field. Her dream is to give her son a better education so that he can have better employment opportunities, a better quality of life, and that he too can see his goals and dreams become reality.
