Sandra Yaquelin's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy several bags of fertiliser and pay hired labour to clean her crop and apply inputs.


Sandra Yaquelin's story

Sandra is 25 years old and belongs to the Lenca ethnic group. She is single and does not have any children. She lives with her family in a community in the town of Yamaranguila, Intibucá.

For 5 years she has been producing and selling top quality potatoes. Her crop is located on the same property where she has her house.

Sandra wants to improve her crop and has decided to apply for a loan of 10,000 lempiras in order to buy several bags of fertiliser and pay hired labour to clean her crop and apply inputs. This will help her to provide good crop maintenance and get better potato harvests.

Her plan is to improve and enlarge her house and buy more land to grow potatoes.
