A loan of $1,425 helped to buy inputs and pay laborers to harvest coffee beans.

Eva Carolina's story

Eva is 30 years old. She is educated, she doesn't have kids, and she lives with her common law husband. Eva and her husband are both middle school teachers currently teaching at a school in their community. She is a visionary and enterprising woman, which is why for the past five years she and her husband have been growing coffee. They started with a piece of land which her husband inherited from his parents, and have put a lot of work and dedication into growing coffee. When the school day is over they go out to the country where they work their land together. It was Eva's husband who taught her how to farm. Her goals and plans have gradually been coming to fruition since she is very optimistic and hardworking. A goal she has is to buy a pickup truck with which to transport the harvested coffee beans to the place where they will be sold, as well as the inputs she needs to keep her coffee plants healthy and strong, with excellent foliage and good-sized coffee beans. Her goal is to be able to install a cement patio where she can dry and clean the coffee before selling it. Today she is requesting a loan from COMIXMUL cooperative with which to buy the inputs she needs to tend her coffee fields, as well as to pay laborers to harvest the coffee beans so they don't dry out or rot on the branch.
