Yesenia Elizabeth
Yesenia is 30 years old and a high school graduate. She is married and her husband works in agriculture. They are the parents of three children, one of whom attends school and the other two are young and do not attend school.

At the moment, Yesenia works as a housekeeper. Previously she worked as a promoter for a social program called Red Solidaria (Solidarity Network), but they laid off employees in the city, and so she is no longer with the program. Now she has decided to lend herself as a helper to her husband in farming.

The loan that she is requesting from CREDICAMPO is to buy manure, fertilizer, seeds, and pesticides for planting, and the other part is to buy a heifer that will soon have a calf. This is for the goal of it giving milk so they can make money and have fresh cheese. This will help her a lot because, with the earnings she will have, she will help her husband with household expenses.

Her dreams are for God to continue giving her life, to continue helping her husband, to be able to find a job with better pay, and to help her husband with household expenses so she can support her children in improving academically.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of a CrediCampo project to help rural farmers living in extreme poverty plant basic grains to feed their families. Excess product is sold on the local market. These loans are smaller than the typical loans offered by this field partner, and guarantee requirements are also reduced. Individuals who receive this type of loan also get access to technical assistance, information on good environmental practices and increased access to farm inputs like fertilizer. This is considered a high risk loan due to the population and loan purpose, and CrediCampo is one of the very few institutions in El Salvador willing to working with these farmers.
