When I moved here to my first stucco house, there were many small damaged areas like that. I can't really get a good idea of how big that is, but on mine I removed the loose stuff, either tapped the mesh back down or snipped it off and then used the premixed stucco repair that comes in a tub at HD or Lowes or similar.

Since that stuff is whitish/grey after it dries/cures, I took one of the larger damaged pieces and had some paint mixed that was an almost perfect match and just touched up those areas. After a year of sun, you can't even see it except when it's wet, since the paint doesn't let water penetrate like regular tinted stucco.

It's been 8 yrs and no problems

Perfect...no, good enough...yes.

I just wet the stucco with a spray bottle so it didn't dry out to fast and used a putty knife to place it. You may have to do it in 2 layers as a thick layer may not adhere too well.

And make sure it's fully dry/cured before painting. It will stay a little soft for quite a while depending on weather.

It's not the ideal way and a Pro would probably scoff at me, but it's still on the house.

You'll have to texture it a little bit using small amounts on the putty knife, but it should work ok.
