A loan of $1,475 helped to buy fertilizer and spray pumps for maintenance of her coffee crop.

Catalina's story

Catalina, 47, is married and has six children and feels blessed with the large family she has. She has only a first grade education but much experience in her work since her parents were the ones who taught her the trade. Catalina and her family cultivate the land they were given by her husband's father so they could make a living and support the family and household. The land is 100 meters from their house so they walk there every day to care for the crops.

Catalina is requesting a loan to buy fertilizder and spray pumps for coffee crop maintenance. If she does not provide care and maintenance the crop can be damaged by mildew.

Her goal is to educate her children so they can improve their employment opportunities and have a better quality of life.
