María Tránsito's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy herbicides and fertilizers to maintain her cultivation of basic grains and vegetables.


María Tránsito's story

María attended school up to ninth grade. She is married and her husband is a mason's helper. She has two daughters who attend school.

María works growing basic grains and vegetables. The fields that she plants are close to her house. She works from 6:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. every day, and her partner helps her.

She will use the loan to buy herbicides and fertilizers to maintain her cultivation of basic grains and vegetables. Previously, she was supported with two loans and she has repaid them.

Maria dreams that her daughters will obtain a university-level education, and she will continue working to achieve this goal.
