All of her efforts are made for the sole purpose of strengthening the family’s finances.

Up until now the work she and her husband have done has born good fruit. Therefore, they project a good future as farmers.

This is her first experience with a community bank. She was invited to join the group that she currently belongs to because they saw in her a young mother who is very responsible with her accounts. The loan is to buy approximately eight bags of fertilizer for their next crops.
