A loan helped to buy agricultural supplies.

Gloria's story

Gloria is a hard-working and entrepreneurial woman of 52 years of age. She lives in the community of La Paz. [Her] house is lent [to her] by her sister. Gloria has two children, a son who is 27 and a daughter who is 11. Gloria is father and mother for her children, since she alone remained with them.

Thanks to her work as a day laborer, she was able to save and begin to plant on lands lent by her grandfather or rented [to her] by third parties. Further on, she obtained her first loan and thus managed to boost her agricultural work.

Gloria wants to obtain financing for the purchase of agricultural supplies that she needs to care for her crops in the months leading up to the harvest. This help will allow her to obtain a production that, God willing, will have a good price in the market, and thus she will be able to obtain a good profit to meet the needs of her family.
