Lurdes's story

Lurdes, 42, is married and has a three-year-old son and 16-year-old daughter. Lurdes has worked in agriculture for 20 years.

She is applying for a loan to buy plants and seeds. She hopes your can help since she has no other means of income and it is important that she increase crop production.
