Aida Luz's story

Doña Aida, at the age of 56, is still dreaming big and working hard every day to get ahead and reach her goals and dreams step by step. She is a housewife and farmer with five children, only one of whom lives at home. She and her partner, who is a driver and farmer, cultivate coffee. Both of them were taught this work at young ages by their parents, who taught them to work the land; in their community this is a popular way to make a living.
Aida wants to improve her crops, so she has requested a loan from COMIXMUL with which she will buy manure, urea, fertilizer, and mulch. This will help her to better tend to her coffee crops.
Her plans for the future are to be able to expand her crops, and to buy more land to plant more coffee and other crops. This would generate a greater income for her family and provide them with a better lifestyle.
