Lourdes's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to plant basic grains (corn and beans).

Lourdes's story

Lourdes is married. She has five children, four of whom are already independent adults. She only has one child who is a minor, depends on her, and is a student. She works growing basic grains and coffee. Her husband and her older children help her with the manual labor.

With the income, she has managed to improve her yields and her home. She also supports her husband with the household expenses.

She is requesting a loan to plant 5 manzanas of beans and two manzanas of corn [1 manzana is about 1.7 acres] . She will invest the loan in the purchase of fertilizer and foliar nutrients. In this way, she will guarantee good care of her crop in different seasons, and therefore generate better output in the harvest.
