Cecilia's story

Cecilia is a 49-year-old single mother of three children, who has always dreamed of making the world a better place. She is an active woman, who works in agricultural activities, with skills that she inherited from her parents. In addition to engaging in some small business activities, Cecilia has been a very hardworking mixed farmer for the past few years, growing maize and raising dairy cows. Through these activities, she earns a decent and honest income.

Although Cecilia has generated profits from farming, not everything has been easy for this humble and industrious mother. Her farm has not been producing much of a harvest lately, due to lack of fertilizer and good seeds, and the presence of pests and diseases. This is why she seeks a loan to buy farm inputs, such as high-nutrient fertilizers and certified seeds, to expand her horticulture farm. With this loan, Cecilia is assured a successful harvest that will mean more profits and income. Thus, she will be able to expand her enterprise.

Cecilia hopes you will consider her appeal for the loan; it would mean a lot to her and her family.
