A loan of $1,250 helped to buy inputs to help her coffee plants.

Kenia Yorleny's story

Kenia, 24, is the mother of one child. She has completed secondary school and graduated with a degree as a primary school teacher. She and her spouse work in agriculture, planting and cultivating coffee, when she isn't teaching. She has been practicing agriculture with her husband for more than 5 years, but it was her parents who taught her the trade from a very young age. It has been her parents' source of income, and now continues to be for her family as well. They carry out all of the work themselves, including cleaning, pruning, fertilization, irrigation and compost for every one of their plantings.

Kenia asks for help to buy inputs that will improve and maintain her coffee plants since this will make her plantation more secure, the plants healthier, and she will be able to earn more profits at the end of it.

Her dream as a mother is to give her daughter as much economic, moral and cultural support as possible so that she can grow up with discipline and education, and will be able to be someone in life who can face challenges and come out on top.
