Elba grows corn, beans and a type of plum called “jocote”. She has been doing this for some time now and this is how she makes a living. God has always provided for her and with her effort, she makes sure her children have everything they need and they recognize what she does for them.
Elba wants to buy agricultural supplies for the upcoming seasons and that is why she is requesting a loan to INTEGRAL in order to buy seeds, compost and fertilizers among other things. She hopes to receive the loan since she has no additional sources of income and she is responsible with the debts she acquires. The only thing she wants is that her children continue to have a good life and that they have everything they need.
More information about this loan
This loan is part of Apoyo Integral's program to help subsistence farmers located in high-risk regions of El Salvador, including coastal strips, river banks, and volcano fault lines. The program, which offers reduced interest rates, targets farmers who don't qualify for formal funding due to their low-income and geographical risk. By funding this loan, you are helping Apoyo and a local non-governmental organization extend risk-tolerant credit to even more farmers.
