A loan of $525 helped to buy a heifer and the inputs to plant corn and beans.


Candelaria Del Carmen's story

Candelaria is 40 years old. She studied until fifth grade. Her partner works in agriculture and they have 3 children of which only the youngest lives with them. Candelaria works with her partner in agriculture and takes care of cattle pasture. They sow corn, squash, and sorghum where she walks 1 km from her house. She takes care of the food at 7 am and helps in the plot for the remainder.

Candelaria requests a loan to buy a heifer and the inputs to plant corn and beans. She made the payments for the previous loan promptly. She wants her son to continue studying and make good use of the proceeds to repay the loan.
