A loan of $1,475 helped to buy agricultural supplies to help her coffee plantings.

Elsa Lidia's story

Doña Elsa is very grateful, first and foremost to God for the many blessings that pour over her and her family every day, to the COMIXMUL cooperative, and to the lenders from the Kiva platform. Doña Elsa bought the fertilizers and paid for the labor to apply them to her coffee plantings, since in this way she was able to do the final maintenance prior to the pruning of the coffee, such as fertilizers, compost, and leaf sprays, among other items, which were a great help for the protection of the coffee, and thanks to that she was able to obtain a good harvest and pay off her first financing.

Now Doña Elsa is applying for a second loan, which she will invest in preparing the land and strengthening the plants, since once the coffee has been pruned, it tends to deteriorate. She will also pay for labor to weed her plantings.

Doña Elsa is sure that the financing she has applied for is a big help, and for that reason she hopes to be supported again, since thanks to this she can strengthen her plantings of coffee and be able to aspire every day to more in life, since the investment is reasonable and is directed to a necessity.
