A loan of $500 helped purchase supplies for maintaining her coffee crop..


Suyapa's story

Suyapa is a 41 year old, hardworking and entrepreneurial woman. She is married and has four children, two of whom currently live at home with her and attend grade school. Together with her husband and an older son, she works in agriculture: cultivating, maintaining, and harvesting coffee. She learned to work the land from her parents many years ago, and now she and her husband have been working at this for 10 years. They are grateful to God that they have their own land, which is located three kilometers from their home.

Now she is requesting assistance in order to purchase mulch and fertilizer because at this time her crop needs regular maintenance and care in order to achieve its optimum yield come harvest time.

Her plans are to be able to properly maintain and care for her coffee crop so that the beans are well maintained and of good quality. Her goal as a mother is see her children all graduated from high school, college, and creating their own homes and families.
