Alejandrina's story

Alejandrina is a hardworking 75-year-old woman. She lives with her husband and three children in Bella Unión, which is located in Acari. She works in the fields, a job that she has been doing since she was very young. Her parents were the ones who taught her the different levels of care that each crop requires.

She is requesting the micro-loan to be able to maintain her olive tree crop in order to have a more productive harvest. Alejandrina hopes to invest her income in the expansion of her crops and keep counting on her good health in the future.
