Magdalena's story

Magdalena, 22, is single and lives with her parents and siblings in the rural community of Patzite. For 10 years she has earned a living growing bananas; she lives in an area where banana production is very good.

In an effort to improve crop quality, she is applying for a loan to invest in the purchase of farm supplies for maintenance of this year’s banana crop.

Her greatest desire is to improve her family’s quality of life.
