Elena's story

Doña Elena is 46 years old and the mother of four children. She is a housewife and farmer. Elena is married and completed six years of her primary school education. Her children and her husband help her with the various farm duties: weeding, harvesting, pruning, fertilizing, and composting. Elena has been farming for more than 20 years since her parents were the ones who taught her at an early age how to work the land. Thanks to God, they were able to give her a plot of land of her own.

Elena is requesting a loan from the COMIXMUL cooperative so that she can buy fertilizers, compost, foliar plant food, and other items since these products keep the leaves in excellent condition and result in a quality plant. In the end, she hopes to achieve a good harvest.

Her plans include buying some more land since she plans to cultivate a wider variety of crops so that she can be more competitive. Her output will also be more attractive so that it can be exported and be known as the best in the area and in the country.
