A loan of $1,425 helped to buy chemicals, fertilizer and other items for her coffee plants.

Karla Waldina's story

Karla is a 25-year-old young woman. She is married, with two children who live with her family. She has completed secondary school, graduating in merchandising and accounting. She is not practicing her profession. Her household companion works in the national registry of citizens. Karla decided to start her own business growing coffee, a skill she learned five years ago from her partner’s company. She watched him work in all the different activities on the farm such as clearing the land, fertilizing, and harvesting. Actually she and her husband support each other in order to progress and help their dependent children.
Karla is asking for this loan today in order to buy fertilizer, manure and chemicals among other items used to grow coffee. If the coffee plants are not maintained, they will suffer rust damage.
Her dream is to educate her children so that they have a better quality of life and better opportunities for employment. Working on the land is hard. There is a lot of exposure to pesticides. If you don’t have the supplies to maintain the crop, you earn very little. If she has this loan, she can prepare and maintain her crops. Then she will have a good harvest and be a good parent to her children.
