A loan of $1,475 helped to buy supplies once again to care for her coffee crop during this new season.


Rosalina's story

Rosalina had previously requested a loan for the maintenance of her coffee crop. This was provided thanks to the different contributions and all of the lenders that make the requested amount possible to get. This was invested in the purchase of all types of fertilizer like organic, nitrate, urea, and coffee formula, which were needed for the maintenance and protection of her coffee crops. This way, at the end of the season her objective of getting a good quantity of 40 loads of coffee was achieved. They were sold at a very good price. With the money obtained, she was able to make her payments on time as scheduled.

Rosalina is currently requesting a new loan to continue investing in her parcels, which are five ‘manzanas’ [a manzana is a land measurement unit equivalent to 7000 square meters or 1.728 acres] of coffee. This field of work is the best and only source of income for her family’s and her household’s well-being.
