A loan of $325 helped to buy fertilizers for her coffee and banana farm.


Maira Suyapa's story

Maira is 36 years old, lives with her long-term partner, and has two children. She lives in a nearby town that belongs to the municipality of Santa Cruz de Yojoa. Maira is very hardworking; she has been working in trade and farming for over ten years. She grows and sells coffee and bananas. She also sells food at the school that is close to her home. She is asking for a second loan of 6,000 lempiras to buy fertilizer for her coffee and banana farm. She hopes that this investment will help her increase her coffee production. Her dream is to work on her farm a lot and give it the maintenance it needs to have a reliable source of income and achieve financial independence for her family.
