Eda Ebelinda's story

Eda, 22, is a single young woman who completed secondary school and graduated as an elementary school teacher. Currently she's in the university preparing herself to favorably confront some economic problems.

She and her parents are farmers; they grow coffee, corn, and beans. Her biggest challenge is having a healthy crop that's protected from pests and diseases such as Roya [coffee rust disease] and Broca [coffee berry borer], because in the market the supplies to attack this type of crop danger are expensive and the prices unstable.

The land she and her parents farm is their own. Located 30 minutes from their home, they go there to maintain it and provide technical help.

She has requested a loan from the COMIXMUL cooperative to buy soil amendments, urea, coffee formula, fertilizer, etc. This way she can provide better help and greater protection as well as maintain her crops.

Her goals are to graduate from college, help her parents as she has done up to the present, and have productive coffee crops that generate jobs and other things that appeal to her customers and other buyers in the area.
