Sandra's story

Sandra is a very enterprising and hardworking 33 year old woman. She’s married and has an elementary school education, which she completed in with lots of effort and sacrifice and support from her parents, despite the difficulties of that time. She and her husband have five children in different elementary school grades. The family farms coffee. It was her parents who taught her this when she was young because this is a beneficial trade that has provided good benefits for the family for generations and she is thankful to God because it continues to do so. Her parents gave her part of the land that they work. They bought another part, located 2 km from their home. They travel there on an animal.

Sandra is asking for a loan, through the COMIXMUL cooperative so she can buy fertilizer, compost, and plant disease medication, for her coffee crops, to maintain and protect them and have a good harvest.

Her plans for the future are to expand her coffee plantation and produce more income that will help cover the cost of her children’s education, food, and other necessities of life.
