A loan of $2,025 helped to buy agricultural products for coffee plantation.

Olivia De Jesus's story

Olivia is 53, she has worked producing coffee for more than 30 years. She lives with her husband and five children at their small ranch of 17 hectares, of which 11 are used as coffee plantation and is managed according to fair trade certification.

This small entrepreneur is in charge of managing her ranch and with her husband they have been able to do a good job managing their plantation, which has resulted in 25% production increase in the past three years.

Her expectations now are to fight the pests that affect coffee and to continue increasing harvesting to obtain more income.
To achieve this, she is requesting a loan that will allow her to guarantee maintenance activities for her coffee this season.

Her dream is to make of her ranch a role model of productivity in the zone where she lives and that her children can have a good base for the future.
