A loan of $1,425 helped to buy agricultural inputs for her coffee crops.

Adela's story

Adela, 48, is married and the mother of two adult children, one of whom lives in the United States. She's a homemaker and a farmer. She wasn't able to continue her elementary education because her parents had limited economic resources and couldn't help her.

She, her husband, and her children do the planting and take care of the coffee plants as well as grow corn and beans. Her challenge is the change in coffee prices and the agricultural inputs she needs to maintain the crops. Her crops are a 10-minute walk from her house; she walks there with her son and her husband.

Currently she plans to get an excellent coffee harvest, but to make that possible she's requesting a loan from COMIXMUL cooperative to buy the necessary agricultural inputs to protect her plants from disease and pests.

Her plans for the future are to see her plants in better condition, to make her crop more attractive for the final customers, and to generate profits to re-invest and build her assets for her children and grandchildren.
