Edita's story

Edita, 32, is enterprising and married. She thanks her parents for helping her finish third grade. She and her husband have three children in elementary school. The family grows coffee, a trade she learned from her parents while working land owned by others. She is grateful that she has is now working her own land, which she inherited from her father, who worked and saved to buy it. Later he gave a her a piece of the land, located about three kilometers from her house, and every day she walks there. She sells her crop through intermediaries who come to the area, and she says her product is of good quality and is healthy.

Edita has applied to the COMIXMUL cooperative for a loan to buy fertilizer, manure, and pesticide to maintain and protect her coffee plants so that they produce a good harvest. She has plans to expand her plantings so that she can earn more income to pay for her children's education, food, and other needs as they grow up.
