Juventina's story

Juventina, 24, is a young woman with a lot of goals and dreams in life, and she very much wants to get ahead. She's married and the mother of an only child who's in elementary school in a school in the community. Juventina finished elementary school, for which she's grateful to her parents' moral and financial support.

She's a very dynamic and enterprising woman who, thanks to a variety of training and working with friends and relatives, has learned to make bread and pinewood handicrafts. She grows tomatoes near her house. She thanks God for her abilities and an open approach to learning.

Juventina has requested a loan from the COMIXMUL cooperative to buy agricultural inputs to take care of her tomato crop. By applying the inputs she'll be able to improve her tomato plants and avoid pests and other contamination.

Her plans for the future are to be able to improve her harvests with a new irrigation system to keep her crop healthy and nourished. She also wants to continue farming, but in larger quantities to be able to cover her currently unsatisfied demand.
