Abigail's story

Abigail is 25 years old, single, and her business is growing corn. She does her work in Punata, a rural zone located on a green mantle of vegetation and encircled by picturesque cultivated fields.

Abigail lives in her own house, there she has 4 hectares of farmland which she received as a hereditary legacy and where she grows corn and potatoes 2 times a year. The work is manual and a pair of oxen help her which push the plow. She has a fumigating backpack and tools such as shovels and pickaxes. She makes her sales 2 times a week at the local markets. To assure her production she has an irrigation system through the well water.

To begin the new planting, she needs to do agricultural work such as turning the soil, weeding and fumigating. The advantage is that she stores her harvest and sells it according to the demand. The problem is doing the work without help. Her dream is to purchase land to expand her cultivation. She wants to begin planting to generate income and become independent. With this loan, she will purchase insecticides and hire helpers. This is the first loan that she has gotten from the institution in the 5 years she has worked independently.

For these reasons, Abigail asks for a loan to purchase insecticides and hire helpers to plant potatoes and become independent.
