Deysi Azucena's story

Deysi is 31 years old and only studied through the 6th grade, due to the fact that there were few schools in her area where she could continue her education. However, her parents taught her how to work the land at a very young age. Deysi has two children; her elder daughter is 11 years old and in sixth grade, while her younger daughter is 9 and in her third year of primary school. Deysi and her husband decided together to help her mother-in-law by taking her into their home. Deysi’s business consists of growing coffee beans and she is very knowledgeable about the cultivation of this crop. In order to help support her family, she recently started a new project, a small grocery store that is located in her home. Doña Deysi’s fields are located close to her house, which is very convenient because at harvest time, she and her husband can work the land themselves. Her clients are buyers who come to her community to buy coffee beans.

Doña Deysi’s biggest dream is for her two children to graduate from school so that they can have a better future, and her biggest goal is to expand her business. She will achieve this goal by improving her product and buying more land to cultivate, which is why she is applying to COMIXMUL for a loan to purchase agricultural supplies and maintain her land. She will reinvest her earnings to generate more profit and support her children’s education.
