Delmy Yessenia's story

Delmy is 35 years old. She is hardworking, responsible, and comes from a good family and they are fighters. She is a married woman, and lives with her husband and her only daughter, who is small. She and her husband are coffee growers, an activity she learned from a young age as her parents taught her how to work the land. Besides working in coffee growing, she is also engaged in business. She has a small general store, which is another means of income for her family, and she strategizes because there aren’t many sources of business like this in the area where she lives. Thanks to moral support as much as financial support from her parents, Delmy was able to attend and complete primary school in spite of the many financial difficulties they had during her youth.

Her dreams as mother of the family are to support her daughter in her studies so that she becomes an excellent professional, and to succeed as a family, and thus, live in the best way possible. She also wishes to continue to expand her coffee crops and be able to generate more income for her family and home, as well as try to take her small general store to another level and generate more profits. So, today, Delmy is requesting financial support to purchase manure, fertilizer, leaf fertilizer, etc. Her priority at this time is to give her coffee crops attention and maintenance because the growing economy of this activity will be enable her get her family ahead.
