Blanca Eufemia's story

Blanca is 31 years old. She is married; her husband works with her in farming. Blanca has four children: Andrea, 14 years old, Kelly, 12, help their parents in the field. They could not continue attending school as the family did not have enough money; Daniela, the third child, is ten years old, while Karla is eight years old; these last two attend a local school three days per week. The family lives surrounded by natural beauty, but the family does not have access to basic utilities or transport.

For 20 years Blanca has worked growing naranjilla. This crop has allowed Blanca to feed her humble family.

Blanca will use this loan to buy manure to increase naranjilla production. She will thus earn a higher income in order to continue feeding her humble family.
