A loan of $650 helped to buy agricultural supplies for her coffee crop.

Ester Lidia's story

Esther’s married and mother of five children who live with her and her husband and help with the various daily chores like pruning, weeding, fertilizing, applying manure, leaf fertilizer, etc. that need to be done to maintain, better protect and keep secure the coffee crop. She’s 42-years-old and completed primary school. She was able to complete it thanks to her parents’ financial and moral support. She’s been in this line of work for 10 years having learned it from training courses she got at an institution so that they would be able to crow and harvest coffee. The land they work as a family was acquired with much effort and sacrifice and is located 5 minutes away from home; they reach it on foot and they work there by themselves as a family.

Her goal is to be able to become the best coffee producer in the zone improving its quality and implementing methods that will reduce production costs and produce an attractive coffee bean at a good price so that it can be exported from the country.

As a mother, to support her children’s schooling preparing them to become better persons in life, better men and women who won’t go through the same situation she did in her youth. This is why today she’s asking for a loan to buy agricultural supplies like manure, leaf fertilizer and coffee formula that will yield more and better protection for her crops so that harvest will be good.
