Norma Griselda's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy fertilizers for her corn and bean crops.

Norma Griselda's story

Norma studied until high school, and is a single mother. Her daughter completely depends on Norma's income, and appears with her in the photograph.

Norma works in agriculture, and has been growing corn and beans for two years, which she learned from her parents. The parcel of land where she plants her crops is close to her house, and she works from 7am until noon. Additionally, she also makes jello and freezies to sell.

She will use this loan to buy fertilizer for her corn and bean crops.

Norma dreams to expand her agricultural production year after year.
