Luisa De Jesús's story

Luisa studied until the 9th grade, is single, and has four children, two of whom are dependent on her and are in school. Her mother also lives with her.

Luisa has worked in agriculture for 3 years, a trade she learned from her parents. The land where she has her crops is close to her house and she works from 6 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon. She also has experience raising cattle and pigs.

She is asking for this loan to buy fertilizers and herbicides for her crops. She dreams of improving her living conditions.
