A loan of $500 helped to buy farming supplies for coffee crops.

Ada Olinda's story

Ada, 46, is a farmer and house wife and has one young daughter.

She works the land especially the coffee, corn and bean plants during winter time, with her domestic partner.

She did not complete elementary school due to her parents lack of economic resources. Her parents taught her to work the land as they are farmers. Their land is located 10 minutes away walking distance.

She sees the need to maintain and help her coffee crops which is why she has requested a loan from the COMIXMUL cooperative so she can buy farming supplies such as fertilizers, urea, manure, etc.

Her future plans are to expand her crops and buy more land in order to plant a bigger variety of coffee such as caturra and lempira which are competitive in the market place.

Her dream as a mother is to be able to give a full education to her daughter and to make each passing day better.
