Yoxaja 6 Group’s story

(The first woman on the left side of the photograph.) Cristina is an extraordinary woman. She has made a living from cultivating coffee for many years, and with the income that she receives she has supported her family. She recounts that thanks to the loan it was possible for her to purchase her agricultural supplies and in time was able to maintain her crop. Fortunately, she had a good harvest which permitted her to improve her income, with which she purchase clothing for her family.

Cristina is a very persistent woman, and every year she looks to improve her crop. It is for this reason that she brought together her group to request a new loan, which she will use to purchase agricultural supplies to maintain her coffee crop. As well she knows, this type of crop requires a strong capital. Cristina’s greatest dream is to improve the quality of life of her family.
