Mirna Noelia's story

Mirna is a very enterprising woman with a desire to succeed. She lives with her husband and two children, who are in the first and fifth grade. She learned about agriculture from a young age, when she supported her father on the land where he grew crops. Her crops are located in the same village, where they are transported either by animals or walking for about an hour and a half. Mirna has a primary school education. She was only able to study up to the first grade, because her family's financial situation was not the best during her childhood. However, she learned to work hard to educate her two children so that they can improve the family's quality of life.

She dreams of seeing her children have a better future with better opportunities and life circumstances, so that they can support the family in whatever they do. For this reason, she is applying for a loan which will allow her to improve her crops, giving them better care by implementing supplies such as manure, fertilizer, coffee formula, and fungicides to avoid infestation and disease.
