A loan helped to prepare the soil, pay labor, and buy agricultural supplies.

Maria De Los Angeles's story

María is a married woman who lives happily with her husband and four children, two of whom are twins. Her house is in the Sta Isabel rural community, which is located close to the cold moor. Here, Maria and her husband make a living working in the fields as day laborers and growing animals. In this way, they work hard so their kids don't lack food.

She is requesting the support of a loan to invest in planting corn since she has a seed that was not able to plant for lack of money. With your help, María will be able to cover soil preparation, labor, and agricultural supplies. In this way, she will get her crops ahead.
