A loan of $350 helped to buy agricultural inputs for her coffee crop.

Fatima Suyapa's story

Fátima is the mother of four children who live in her house with her husband. Two of them (the oldest) are in secondary school and the younger two are in elementary school. She completed elementary school through the sixth grade thanks to the support of her parents and the effort they put into her being able to study.

She has made a living growing coffee for more than 18 years, a job her parents instilled in her because it's a job done by her family for many years and generations. She and her husband and children go to the place where they grow their crops five minutes from their home, sometimes on foot and other times by motorcycle.

She's requesting help to buy inputs and take care of her crops, which need weeding, fertilizer, and soil amendments to take care of the plant, the bean, and the root. Her goal is to be able to fertilize and maintain her crops as she has done up to the present so she gets a quality and safe crop.

Her dream as a mother is to keep on supporting her children so they continue to study and graduate from the university.
