A loan helped to purchase agricultural supplies to grow corn.

Martina Maribel's story

Martina studied until third grade in school, is married and has two children who are in school. Her husband is a merchant.

Martina has grown corn and taken care of smaller species for many years. She walks a kilometer from her house to the plot where she sows her crops and works from 6:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Martina will use the loan to purchase agricultural supplies to grow corn.

She dreams of improving her house and having her children study.
