A loan of $600 helped to buy agricultural inputs for growing her coffee crops.

Norma Lilian's story

Norma is a 41-year-old woman. She and her partner have five children, who are in different grades in secondary school. She completed her primary education, thanks to a lot of effort and sacrifice on the part of her parents, who also taught her how to farm. On the farm it is only the family that works, with no external help. The family heads to the countryside every day, along with the children once they have finished their school day. That is where they do the work necessary to maintain their protected crops. Their crops are one kilometre away from their home.

Norma's harvest is sold in the local market on a small scale, and to certain buyers who come from different regions near to the place where she lives.

She dreams of seeing her children grow up to be professionals and good people, getting by in the world in the best way possible. With time, by way of the land that they are currently working, Norma hopes to create employment opportunities for other people. It is for this reason that she is currently asking for a loan from the COMIXMUL cooperative, in order to buy five quintals of fertilizers, five quintals of urea, five quintals of coffee fertilizer and five litres of coffee nutrients. With these items, she will maintain her crops and help them to grow, so that she can begin to carry out her plans and dreams.
