Linda Claritza's story

Linda, 39, works hard and is married. She finished elementary school. She has two young children, who are in elementary school. She lives with her two children, a niece, and her husband. For 10 years, Linda has been farming, specifically growing coffee, a trade she learned from her parents when she was a child, and she has a lot of experience. Her parents gave her some of her land, and, after much labor, she and her husband bought the rest. The land is 3 kilometers from her house, and she walks more than 10 minutes to reach it. Sometimes, it takes less time. Then they fertilize and weed the plants themselves. They work hard so that they don't have to spend much money on labor, as they don't have the resources to do so.

Linda hopes to have an excellent harvest because her household finances depend on it. She sells her output to intermediaries who come to the area. She needs a loan to buy agricultural supplies and to pay laborers to help with her coffee plantings so that she can reach her goals of paying for her children's education, building assets for them, and having land on which they can live and work.
