Wendy Lisseth's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy agricultural items to plant corn, buy fruits for selling and concentrate food for pigs.


Wendy Lisseth's story

Wendy studied until 9th grade in school, is single and has 3 children who go to school.

Wendy has sold fruit for the last 5 years and walks 10minutes from her house to where she sells. She wakes up at 5:00 a.m. to get ready and she sells from 8:00 a.m. until noon. Three days per week in the afternoons she goes out to take care of pigs to breed and then sell them. She also works with agriculture.

Wendy will use the loan to buy agricultural items to plant corn, buy fruits for selling and concentrate food for pigs.
She dreams of giving her children a good education and for them to become professionals.
