A loan of $1,425 helped to buy land for her coffee business.

Martha Lidia's story

Doña Martha Lidia says that she was very pleased with her last loan. She used the money to buy10 sacks of manure and to pay a laborer who helped her spread the manure on her land, work that was needed to prepare the land for a new coffee crop. She hopes the investment will ensure that the new crop will be a good one.

Doña Martha is now applying for a second loan that she will use to buy more land and plant more coffee. The help that she has received from the COMIXMUL cooperative and KIVA lenders has allowed her to increase her output of coffee and, in turn, her income and quality of life. She says that the COMIXMUL cooperative has been a great help to her and she is committed to repaying the loan because without the cooperative's help, she won't be able to continue growing her business. She hopes future borrowing will allow her to buy still more land, an investment that will improve her life and the lives of her children.
