View original language description ↓
Esthers is a dynamic and entrepreneurial woman, who has dedicated herself to hard agricultural work since childhood, and since then she has not stopped working and saving to increase the income of her family. She has land holdings where she grows potatoes, corn, wheat, etc. and also raises animals like pigs, sheep and cows. She cares for and sells her animals while she waits for the harvest season. Her goal is to increase the amount of crops so that she can have a more abundant harvest, and this way can gain more earnings, which is why she has asked for this loan to be invested in the purchase of compost and fertilizers for her next crop.
