Marina Esperanza
Marina, 65, did not attend school. She’s mother of three children and her husband works in agriculture. Her children do not live with them but a sister, niece and grandson do and they help with the agricultural chores her and her husband’s income depends on.

Marina works in agriculture growing corn and beans and they also have a coffee plantation that’s currently producing. They have many years’ experience in the productive activities they carry out which they learned from their parents. It takes her a 15-minute walk to reach her fields. She works from 6am until 11 in the morning and then returns home. She does this periodically with her family’s help.

The loan will be to buy fertilizer and pesticide for a 14,000 square meter corn crop and a 7,000 square meter bean crop that are already planted and from which she expects to earn more family income sufficient to repay her loan and to use profits to continue making home improvements.

Marina’s dream is to care for her small farm and to improve her home. She’s sure that she will be able to reach all this as long as she continues to work hard like she’s done to date.
