Ilse Ivania's story

Ilse Ivania is a 23-year old entrepreneur with a secondary education degree. She is a fighter from a humble family that has farmed for generations. She has a two-year old son and is grateful to her parents for their support. They have been a great example of respect and honesty for her. Together with her partner, she does different jobs in the fields such as cleaning, spreading manure, fertilizer, and leaves, as well as other tasks that help the crops grow strong. The land that she and her spouse work is their own, and was acquired through a purchase. It is about an hour's walk away.

Their plans for the future are to be able to buy more land and to plant a different type of coffee - more attractive, more competitive in the local and national market - so they can one day fulfill their dreams of exporting their product to other countries. Ilse is requesting a loan from the cooperative COMIXMUL for the purchase of agricultural supplies which will support and maintain their coffee crop so they can take full advantage of the next season since harvest time is approaching.
