A loan of $1,425 helped to plant a new tomato plot and another part of the loan for her coffee crops.

Erlin Maria's story

Thanks to the first loan granted to her by the COMIXMUL cooperative along with the lenders from Kiva, Erlin was able to buy the supplies that she needed to protect her coffee crops from infestations which might have damaged her crops. She bought fertilizer, manure, foliar sprays to help her crops. Also part of the loan was used for supplies destined for a tomato plot where she grew about 500 square meters of tomato plants. She got an excellent harvest which helped her pay off her first loan. She sold them for a very good price in the market and received more than she was expecting.

Erlin is very grateful to be considered by COMIXMUL offering her this kind of financial support. She has now requested a second loan in order to once again plant tomato crops and invest another part of the loan for her coffee crops. Then at harvest time she can get the profits she anticipates and continue to enjoy these benefits.
