Coral is a very hard working woman who is 33 year old and the mother of a small 8-year old daughter. Her regular work has allowed her to always provide for herself, her aging mother and her young daughter. She is a farmer and also tends to her livestock. She plants primarily corn, potatoes, and beans, among other things. Additionally, she raises goats and pigs. Coral provides the sole means of financial support for her family. For this reason, she puts forth the greatest of efforts to be able to earn enough to live on day-to-day. Coral has been running her enterprise for five years, and currently has set herself the goal of improving her next harvest. For this reason, she is requesting a loan to invest into the purchase of fertilizers and additional animals to raise. Please help support Coral so she may continue to work.
