Josefa Del Carmen's story

Mrs. Josefa del Carmen G. is 37 years old and lives in the Eden neighborhood in the city of Ticuantepe together with her husband, who helps her with the household expenses. They have three dependent children, all in school. Their plan for their familiy is to improve the conditions in which they live in order to improve their wellbeing. Josefa has worked in agriculture for 21 years. The greatest difficulties she faces are the lack of financing and the pests that affect the crops. She started the farming business with her own efforts and the help of her husband. She wants the financing to buy supplies and fertilizers, in order to improve the growing conditions of the crops she plants. She has hope that this year will be a good harvest and will generate good earnings. This is her sixth loan cycle with Afodenic and she is thankful for the benefits and the support that she has received and that have made it possible for her to move ahead with her crop production.
