A loan of $1,000 helped to buy agricultural consumables for her coffee plants.

Maria De Los Angeles's story

Doña Maria is a 49 year old married woman who is in excellent health with plenty of energy and spirit to work. She works in a company belonging to her husband and her family. Her family is large: it is made up of 8 children; only three of them live with their parents. She takes care of them because they are minors and are studying in primary school.

Her family works sowing and cultivating coffee because she learned this at an early age from her parents. They were the ones to teach her how to work the soil, because they were unable to support her in her studies. She only completed the second grade. Due to scarce economic resources, she decided to learn to work and help her family to get ahead. Her coffee plants are located on the same property as where she lives, so the maintenance and assistance they need is easier to give for their protection and care. Her dream, as the mother of her family, is to be able to educate her children so that they can live in good conditions and to give them a better quality of life with a higher level of education. She also dreams of improving her plants by sowing a better and more attractive variety of coffee.

So today she is asking the co-op bank COMIXMUL for funding to buy 10 quintals of urea, 5 quintals of 18-46-0 fertilizer, 8 quintals of coffee formula fertilizer, and 5 quintals of growth formula to be able to help her plants and get better output and higher profits from the same sales.
