Dilma Esperanza's story

Dilma is forty-nine years old and is the mother of two children. She is a farmer and housewife, and also sells used clothing to the neighbors and friends that come to her home (where she has her business). She has completed a primary level of education. She lives with her partner. He is a teacher. Together they have their own coffee, corn, and bean crops. They are thankful to God that they have land where they can cultivate their own crops and make a clear profit. Their crops are located close to their home, and they are able to walk to carry out their different business activities.

She has requested financing from the communal bank COMIXMUL. She will use it to buy agricultural supplies for her corn and bean crops. With these supplies, she will have a better harvest and can protect her final products from pests and bugs.

Her future plan is to cultivate a better variety of coffee. In this way, she will be able to make better profits from farming. She can also continue supporting her children in their studies and with other necessities they may require in the future.
