Yesenia Del Carmen's story

Yesenia attended school up to ninth grade. She is in a relationship and her husband works making and selling bread.

Yesenia works in agriculture, especially growing corn. The land that she farms is close to her house, and she works from 6:00 to 11:00 a.m. Also she makes bread, supporting her husband in this work, which she does from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

She needs the loan to buy seeds, fertilizers, herbicides, and fungicides to grow corn.

Yesenia dreams of improving her family's quality of life.
