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

A loan helped to buy agricultural supplies and sacks, and to hire workers.

Blanca's story

Blanca is a simple countrywoman who lives with her husband and daughter for whom she is providing an education. Blanca and her husband have worked in agriculture for their whole lives. Through much hard work they have managed to have a house of their own and to buy land to farm.

The economic recession brought on by Covid-19 has affected prices when they come to sell their crops. For this reason it is necessary for Blanca to seek a loan to buy agricultural supplies necessary for her crop of onions which she will transplant in a month. Blanca is very responsible and promises to make the repayments on time as she has always done. Her goal in life is to leave her children a legacy which they need to live on.
