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

Denia Maydeli's story

Denia, age 27, is a tenacious and enterprising young woman. She is in a common-law marriage, and she has one child. He is very little, and he does not go to school because he is not school age. She has one grade of primary school education. She was not able to continue studying for lack of financial support from her parents. In her life partner’s company she learned to work the land approximately eight years ago. In her area the business activity that generates money to support the different families is growing coffee.

The different jobs with her crops are done by the two of them. They work together farming in familial union with mutual support. The crops are one kilometer from their house, and they go there by foot. Their product is commercialized and sold at the local market on a small scale to the different sellers in the area.

She is now requesting help in order to buy supplies to improve their coffee crops. By doing so, she will be able to assure her crops and the product in order to generate income for her family.

Her plans and goals for the future are to expand her crops by purchasing more land. She will be able to work the land and strengthen the heritage for her forthcoming children. Her dream is to see her child fulfilled and with a university education. This way she will be able to prepare him academically and give him the security and confidence to develop in the future.
