Lesli's story

Lesli is 32 years old. She is happily married and has two children. She finished her primary education thanks to the financial support from her parents. Her husband works as a primary education teacher and also as a farmer in the coffee plantation in his spare time. Lesli learned from her parents how to farm the land at a very early age. In her family, farming, and coffee farming in particular, is a tradition and their only source of income.
Lesli has decided to inject some capital to her coffee plantation with the support from the field partner, "Cooperativa Comixmul". With the loan, she will buy supplies that will protect her crops from weather changes, pesticides such as "gramoxon", chemical fertilizers, manure, urea, etc. Lesli's short term goals include increasing the coffee production volume to bring more income home. In that way she hopes to support her children with their studies as well as establish some assets for their well-being in the future.
