A loan of $1,475 helped to buy agricultural supplies to attend her coffee crops.

Zoila Esperanza's story

Doña Zoila is very happy, very satisfied, and very glad because thanks to the financial support by the KIVA investors, in partnership with the COMIXMUL cooperative, she was able to buy the supplies that were needed for her coffee crops, providing a greater and better support so that the crops would be protected from plagues, climate change, etc.

Thanks to the first loan her life improved, given that at the beginning she did not have the financial resources to be able to buy the supplies that she needed; and thanks to the trust that the cooperative put on her and taking her into account with such loan, she bought manure, foliar fertilizers, and fertilizers with which she gave maintenance and support to her coffee crops, managing to obtain excellent earnings from her crops and being able to catch up with her funding.

She is again asking to be backed with a second loan, which she will invest in being able to give support and maintenance to her coffee crops, because after harvesting the plants are left a bit battered and deteriorated, as well as cleaning of the same weeds, among other things.
