Isabel
Isabel is from the La Laguna Region. She has four children, who are 20, 18, 16, and 11 years old and of whom only one is in school, in the sixth grade at the local school. She is married and even though her husband works in Costa Rica sometimes, she tells us that he sends her money to feed their children. Isabel has grown beans and corn for 10 years now and, as a result of the money she has made from her harvests, she has bought just over 2.5 acres of land, which is expensive in this region because it is fertile. She tells us that when she gets her harvest, she takes it to sell at the market in Managua since sales are better there. Through a lot of effort and dedication, Isabel gets her family ahead, as it is up to her to be both mother and father to her children in addition to providing food for them daily. She will use her loan to buy bean seeds to plant, to buy supplies, and to have enough to pay for labor. She tells us that the loan will help her acquire and pay for part of the expenses she accrues in planting her staple grains. She also tells us that once she gets her harvest she will pay off her loan and, with the earnings that are left over, she will buy what she needs to make improvements her home.
