A loan of $1,425 helped to buy fertilizer, prepare her crop land and set up a coffee greenhouse.

Maria Lilian's story

María, 40, is a hard-working woman who has many dreams and hopes for her son. She is a farmer and works with her common-law husband and son growing corn, beans and coffee. She has been in business for many years, having learned farming from her parents when she was very young. She was unable to get an education because her parents could not pay for it.

María is requesting a loan through COMIXMUL to buy fertilizers, prepare the crop land and set up a new coffee greenhouse.

Her future plans include renovating her house which needs new plaster on the walls and a new floor. She also wants to change the variety of coffee she is growing to make it more competitive at the market. Her goal is to give her son a better future by strengthening the business she has today together with her husband.
