Sara's story

Sara is a 38-year old woman who is married and has two children, ages 16 and 13. She lives with her family in Suchitepéquez. She makes a living growing and selling bananas in her community. She learned this activity from her family, who had been doing it for many years. Her job gives her enough income to provide her children with what they need. She says she has been in this business for over 10 years and that she enjoys that it is an honest activity and helpful to the community. Sara also produces coffee, which gives her some extra income to complement the family budget.

She is requesting a loan of Q10,000 to buy supplies to maintain her banana plots. Sara's dream is to increase her coffee and banana production to generate more income and improve the life conditions of her family.
