Puerta Del Cielo Group's story
Elida Evarista is the borrower this time around. She has been growing and selling maize for many years. Her husband and children help out all the time. Her dream is to have a bigger plot of land in order to grow more maize and sell it better to earn decent money. She thanks God for keeping her healthy and strong so that she can keep farming. Now, at harvest time, she needs to hire farm hands to harvest the ears, buy sacks to store them, and get fertilisers so that pests do not invade. She does not have the money for all that, which is why she asks for a loan.
